I have been buying Bayer Chewable Low Dose Aspirin low dose for many years - before the cheaper generic aspirin was released - first for my children when they were young, then for my grandchildren, and now for my heart health as prescribed by my doctor. It works great for young children who do not need the larger dose and have trouble swallowing the size of full strength aspirin, but on occasion when I've had no other pain relievers in the house, I took one low dose and it did very little for the pain. You have to take three low dose aspirin (81mg) for every one regular strength (325) and that would be too expensive, in my opinion. (So is paying more for a name brand when the generics are exactly the same in ingredients and strength.) My children never had a problem with the taste of the chewable low dose aspirin, but I found it sour and there was a strong aftertaste of artificial sweetener. Overall, I'd suggest buying a generic, coated low dose aspirin tablet - they are smaller than the regular dose size, the coating makes it easy to swallow, and pharmaceutically it's the same as the name brands.
