Possible Aspirin Overdose, Unsure of proper usage.


Q: Hi my SIL took 2 grams of chewable cherry aspirin in the span of two hours, she says she feels fine but could that have sideeffects on her after? she doesn't feel anything and has been drinking a lot of water. She believed the chewable were not as strong as the extra strength so she took 20 total and dissolved them in her water. It has been 20 hours later and she says she feels fine, but me and my husband are not used to taking so many pills or see somebody take that many so we were concerned. Is this a normal dosage 2 grams? 81mg x 20?

Symptoms:  None
