Aspirin pills. View of several aspirin pills. The pills are scored with a groove so that they can be easily halved for lower doses, for instance, for children. Aspirin is the common name for the analgesic (painkiller) acetylsalicylic acid. It is used to treat mild pain and can reduce the effects of a fever. It also prevents blood clotting, and this can help prevent heart attacks and strokes. Also seen are several smaller homeopathy pills. Homeopathy is a system of medicine in which very small doses are taken of drugs which, in large doses, produce the same symptoms as those from which the patient is suffering. Doses are formulated through a series of dilutions in water.
