SUMMARY

Carisoprodol and Aspirin Tablets, USP
mg/325 mg
Rx Only

Carisoprodol and Aspirin tablets, USP are a fixed-dose combination product containing the following two products:

  • 200 mg of carisoprodol, a centrally-acting muscle relaxant
  • 325 mg of aspirin, an analgesic with antipyretic and anti-inflammatory properties
It is available as a two-layered, Red and White, round tablet for oral administration.

Carisoprodol and Aspirin is indicated for the relief of discomfort associated with acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions in adults. Carisoprodol and Aspirin should only be used for short periods (up to two or three weeks) because adequate evidence of effectiveness for more prolonged use has not been established and because acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions are generally of short duration (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION).
