Please if you can, help me. My good friend is very depressed. The last couple of days she has not been eating and taking anywhere from two to 4 aspirin (full strength) every few hours to 'stop her pain'. I was with her yesterday and and noticed how somber she was although she tried to hide it. We stopped at a drugstore and she purchased wintergreen oil. Well, I looked it up and it is basicly liquid aspirin and HIGHLY toxic. I went so far as to contact local authorities but they say she has done nothing illegal, so they cannot do a thing. Aspirin and wintergreen oil are both legal and without 'proof' I am just left to worry. Can anyone please let me know exactly what the dangers are with these substances? Thank you.
