Aspirin Poisoning


Aspirin is an analgesic drug often used to relieve minor pains and aches; reduce fever and relieve inflammation. One of the most commonly-used medications worldwide, it is estimated that 40,000 tonnes of aspirin are consumed annually.

Aspirin poisoning can be acute or chronic. An accidental case of acute aspirin poisoning is rare, as a very large amount of the drug (in excess of thirty 325-mg tablets for a 150 pound individual) is required even for mild poisoning. Chronic aspirin poisoning tends to occur accidentally through regular consumption of doses slightly above that prescribed for the patient.
