Salicylamide is the common name for the substance o-hydroxybenzamide, or amide of salicyl. Salicylamide is a non-prescription drug with analgesic and antipyretic properties. Its medicinal uses are similar to those of aspirin.[1] Salicylamide is used in combination with both aspirin and caffeine in the over-the-counter pain remedy "PainAid". It was also an ingredient in the over-the-counter pain remedy BC Powder but was removed from the formulation in 2009.
