In brief: Aspirin Overdose ?

This amount of Aspirin (total of 1300mg over 2 to 3 hours) will not cause any adverse effect in most cases.
There is a small possibility that there maybe some stomach irritation. It may therefore be worthwhile to eat some food or take some antacid pills like 2 tablets of tums (calcium carbonate). Be careful in future not to take more medication than advised.

In brief: Depends

That amount for an average size adult is not likely to be a problem unless there is a pre existing allergy, bleeding condition or known ulcers or kidney disease.
That plus a small size person or extremes in age can add to potential problems.

In brief: ASPIRIN

Not a toxic dose, though you might expect stomach stomach upset.
