What should I watch for while using this medicine?

Do not take other aspirin products unless directed by your doctor or health care professional. Many non- prescription medicines contain aspirin. To prevent accidental overdose, read labels carefully and do not take more than one product that contains aspirin.

If you have diabetes, this medicine may affect your blood sugar levels. Check with your doctor or health care professional before you change your diet or the dose of your diabetes medicine.
