Aspirin: I wouldn't recommend taking those 2 medications simultaneously. Instead of disprin, you could take acetaminophen safely according to instructions and not drinking alcohol while taking full doses. In addition your MD could prescribe nonNsaid pain relievers like tramadol or muscle relaxants if back stiffness is an issue.
