In a medical text, it say:
... treat with aspirin over claxane.
I can't get the meaning of over.
Does it mean instead of?
I have following idiom dictionary:
NTC's American Idioms Dictionary by Richard A. Spears
But I couldn't see any entry for treat ... over
If I want to find it in Oxford Learner's Dic. or idiom Dic., where should I look for?
Have a look at Raymott's profile in the 'About me' section.

I'm never opposed to a guess or two If the book is an American book, the phrase might possibly mean "Choose aspirin over Clexane in treating this ailment."
