Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to health care magic,

You brought 'nighttime cough' syrup which does not contain aspirin or any other NSAIDs.

It contains,

1) dextromethorphan is morphine class of drug and have a antitussive (cough suppressant) with sedative and dissociative properties

2) doxylamine succinate is actually a antihistame drug used in dry cough, allergy and cold relief with mild sedative effect.

Both this ingredients has nothing to do with aspirin or any other NSAIDs.
