How many aspirin does it take to kill a person?


Answer by  stressedone (166)

The number of aspirin depends on many factors, such as age, weight,previous medical conditions, or medications taken. The aspirin is not usually the direct cause of death, but how it affects the body's organs. Hemorrhaging and renal failure are two of the most common causes of death.

An average aspirin is 325 mg. In order for an aspirin to be fatal a person would need to consume between 200 mg and 500mg. Anything within that amount could be fatal depending on the doseage matched against the person's body weight. The heavier the person the higher the fatal doseage rate would be.

It depends on if alcohol is involved. Approximately 50 if you are not drinking, over 100 if you are. The real question is why do you want to know. Please call someone if you are thinking of suicide. There is hope out there. Reach out to someone. Please.

I don't think it would actually be the aspirin that would kill you but rather the side effects of taking a massive dose. It is can cause bleeding and ulcers. Aspirin also damages the kidneys and the liver.
