Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

You are taking a large dose of aspirin. According to the University of Michigan:

Dosage: Adults (age 20 and older), 650 mg every 4 hours, as needed. Maximum adult dose is 4,000 mg in a 24-hour period. Aspirin is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). For information about other NSAIDs, see nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Why are you taking so much?

Taking too much aspirin can cause aspirin can cause hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in the brain) or serious gastrointestinal bleeding. People who have had a history of stomach ulcers have up to three times the risk of a gastric bleed than those without that history.

Please talk to your doctor about your intake and the risks involved. We cannot say when side effects could occur in your case.
