Aspirin is sometimes abbreviated by physicians and pharmacists as ASA, an acronym for acetylsalicylic acid (the compound's chemical name, equivalent to 2-acetoxybenzenecarboxylic acid). ECASA is an acronym for enteric-coated
aspirin; the coating helps slow down the tablet's disintegration until
it has left the stomach so as to avoid some of the stomach upset that
can accompany use of the drug. Aspirin appears as the only active ingredient in many over-the-counter and prescription medications.
