Resolved Question:

Is it safe to take 2 Anadin Extra every morning to ease back pain. It seems to help my movements and relaxes my body? Are there side effects if I do this. I am female aged 71 going on 20! Thank you. Mandy Burges.

The paracetamol and caffeine are not a problem but that's too much aspirin in one day
