salicylate-induced hallucination

   Salicylate is also known as salicylic acid and 2-hydroxybenzoic acid. The name salicylate is indebted to the Latin name Salix, which means willow tree (from the bark of which salicylates can be obtained). Salicylates constitute the active ingredient of acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin) and many other therapeutics. "Tinnitus is a frequent side effect of salicylate intoxication. " Musical hallucinations have also been reported.
