side effect of aspirin on children on over doses

First a child should not be given aspirin, unless its for rheumatoid arthrits. A small child will suffer overdose fairly rapidly, it doesn't take much. Vomiting and drowsiness are usually the first thing you'd see. If an overdose is suspected in a small child, like if they got in the aspirin, they should be taken to the er before any symptoms even occur. I worked in er years ago when kids were given baby aspirin, and I washed out many a stomach.
