Welcome to Healthcare Magic
If it is less that 2-3 hours after consuming 30 tablets it is best she is taken to Hospital and stomach wash/activated charcoal treatment done to prevent drug absorption in the body, otherwise she will have severe effects including heart problems, muscle damage and kidney failure. Do not delay.
