No medication should be given to a rat unless advised by a vet. An overdose of aspirin or even the correct dose, under specific circumstances, can kill a rat, depending upon other factors. You can read more about this medication and it's use in rats, here:

It's best to have your rat evaluated and treated by a vet, as soon as possible.
