Aspirin side effects: Caffeine shouldn't have significant adverse effects beyond insomnia if taken within a few hours of try to sleep. Aspirin when used intermittently in adults also shouldn't be a problem. When used chronically it can put you at increased risk for bleeding and high doses can be toxic. Follow the package labeling to be safe.
