Methocarbamol and aspirin should not be given to any child or teenager with the flu, chickenpox, or other virus, as it increases the risk for Reye's syndrome. Methocarbamol and aspirin may not be appropriate for pregnant or nursing women, so these women should talk to their doctors about the safety of this medication.
