Brief Answer:
there is no cross reaction with asprin or codeine

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
XXXXXXX is a muscle relaxant. It also has some sedative properties.

The actual drug name is carisoprodol.
It contains other inactive components.

It does not contain either aspirin or codeine so she can use it safely.

There is some possible interactions with other drugs such as meprobamate, tybamate or mebutamate.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
