Hi Shantanu,

Disprin is a trade name for aspirin, which should generally be given to patients with coronary artery and other vascular disease unless there are important contra-indications. There is no firm consensus about the optimum dose, and anything from 75 to 150 mg daily is usually regarded as acceptable.

Kind regards JT.
