Pepto Bismol[edit]

According to another article on the site, this condition can be caused not only by aspirin, but by other chemically similar drugs, such as bismuth subsalicylate (aka Pepto Bismol). Shouldn't that be mentioned? (talk) 01:49, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Metabolic Pathways[edit]

I think this article would benefit from a description of the metabolic pathways which are responsible for the toxicity. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:40, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Notable Cases[edit]

I've removed the ==Notable Cases== section for now. It has no reference, and as a single case, it seems out of place. In a medical context, I expect notable cases to include unusual cases with respect to dosage and toxicity or survival (not just a singelton entry regarding a possibly well-known person).

L l[edit]

Can someone go through the article changing all the Ls for ls when referring to the litre. It's bad enough to have both as being 'acceptable' but to mix them in one article is just not acceptable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:30, 19 October 2012 (UTC)


This doesn't sound appropriate for an encyclopedia as it is self-evident (but OK for a health wellness website):

When aspirin overdose is suspected, immediately contact a doctor, or any medical professional if no doctor is available. All overdosed patients should be conveyed to a hospital immediately for assessment.

Should we delete this two sentences in favor for starting the section with the treatment right away?
