I am taking ecosprin av 75 & famocid 40 for several years. It is advised by a cardiologist. Another medicine like espin at is also taken. My question is will ecosprin av 75 harm my intestine?

No, it is very important.
The ecosprin is known to cause increased acid secretion which can lead to ulcers. Therefore, the acid antagonist ranitidine or omeprazole is always given along with ecopsrin.
