Huh?: Don't take an overdose of aspirin! the dose for adults is: 325-650 mg every 4 hours as needed. For children, the dose is: 10-15 mg/kg every 4-6 hours with a maximum daily dose of 60-80 mg/kg. If you get ringing in the ears, stomach upset or nausea, lower the dose. Follow these instructions and you will avoid an Aspirin overdose.
