Yashica, I am calculating the toxic dose please sit tight for a few minutes.
Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 2 years ago.
Yashica, the amount of aspirin, acetaminophen and caffeine ingested by Oreo is not going to be fatal. But, the combination of aspirin and acetaminophen can be irritating to the gastrointestinal tract. I would recommend you start oreo on Pepcid AC (famotidine) 10mg 1/4 tablet every 12 hours for the next 3-4 days. You can buy Pepcid AC over the counter in any pharmacy. Do Not give things like Pepto Bismol.
