72 hour Gaming Marathon Event - Advice please about Aspirin

by Will
(Bristol)

I am looking forward to taking part in a 3 day marathon gaming session, around 300 online players will be taking part and I don't want to miss it, I have seen the information about DVT Deep Vein Thrombosis on your site and talked about this amongst my gamer friends the other night.

Several of us seem to think that taking aspirin would be a good idea to prevent the blood clots and I would like to ask the advice of the experts , what do you think ? And what dosage would you suggest ?

Someone said that Junior Aspirin would be the best one to take ?

Cheers
