The ingredient that makes Disprin Extra Strength work (the active ingredient) is Aspirin. Aspirin belongs to a group of medicines known as non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It works to relieve pain and inflammation.

Disprin Extra Strength can be used to 

  • relieve mild to moderate pain (such as headache, toothache and nerve pain)
  • reduce temperature and inflammation, such as lower back pain.

Directions for use:

For oral use.

Oral administration after dissolution in water.

Adults and children 16 years and over:

One tablet. This dose may be repeated every 3-4 hours, if needed. Do not take more than 8 tablets in 24 hours.


Use with care as elderly patients are more prone to side effects.


Do not take Disprin Extra Strength if you:

  • are allergic to or have ever had an allergic reaction to aspirin or to other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or to any of the other ingredients (see list below).
  • have or have ever had a stomach ulcer perforation or bleeding

  • have systemic lupus erythematosus or mixed tissue connective disease, as there is an increased risk of aseptic meningitis.
