This medicine contains aspirin, which may cause a condition called Reye's syndrome, especially in children with or recovering from a viral infection (including chicken pox, influenza). Do not give this medicine in these patients, unless ordered by your doctor. Talk to your doctor if you have concerns.

This medicine may cause confusion, tremors, or lightheadedness, or make you less alert than you are normally. Do not drive or do anything else that could be dangerous until you know how this medicine affects you. Sit or lie down if you feel dizzy. Stand up carefully.
