Drug effects and Aspirin
Effect of drugs
Watch Mr Harvey
Mild analgesics function by intercepting the pain stimulus at the source, often by interfering with the production of substances that cause pain, swelling or fever. • Aspirin is prepared from salicylic acid. • Aspirin can be used as an anticoagulant, in prevention of the recurrence of heart attacks and strokes and as a prophylactic.
Under discussion

Description of the use of salicylic acid and its derivatives as mild analgesics.
• Explanation of the synthesis of aspirin from salicylic acid, including yield, purity
by recrystallization and characterization using IR and melting point.
• Discussion of the synergistic effects of aspirin with alcohol.
• Discussion of how the aspirin can be chemically modified into a salt to increase
its aqueous solubility and how this facilitates its bioavailability.
