Please do not take ecosprin without establishing diagnosis of Coronary artery diaease (means blockage in arteries). Even you should have not started any medication just on basis of family history. your main focus sud be on diet and regular exercise. Regularly check for BP if it constantly over 140 den start antihypertensives. Cholesterol lowering agent no need as now. Still if you want to continue den take it with lifelong commitment. No point of taking ecosprin if no CAD.
