In brief: The

The maximum recommended dose of Aspirin per day is 4 grams(4000mg).
However daily ingestion of 600-1200mg is quite a bit and may result in GI effects (ulcers, abdominal pain, pancreatitis, etc); headaches, low blood pressure, potassium abnormalites etc.Etc the list goes on and on. The person in question should visit her primary care provider and go over other safer options to manage her pain.
