I'm just wondering if the japanese pain killer
'Bafarin' is like aspirin - as in, is it an anti-coagulent (blood thinner)?? Thanks!

Bufferin (pronounced "bafarin" in Japanese) is a product of Lion.

Aspirin is a product of Bayer.

They are basically the same things. However, somehow, Aspirin seems to suit me better. There are also many other similar over-the-counter pills that work for fever, headaches and and various other pains.

.... and if you prefer something like Aspirin I recommend "Naron Ace" (hope the spelling is correct?!). Always helps me without any side-effects.

thanks everyone.

I just needed to know if it contained aspirin which would thin the blood, and it seems its a sort of buffered aspirin, so it should be fine for me :)
