Is it safe to take 2 Anadin Extra every morning to ease back

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.

It comprises aspirin, paracetamol and caffeine.

Dr. Phil, MD :

yes. This is not safe to take daily

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

Yes.

I wouldn't take it daily

Dr. Phil, MD :

One per day is even too much

It can cause stomach and kidney problems.

I would advise max 4 times per week

paracetamol only
