I dont think that she is overdosing/addicted, though that is a possibility.
The chance are more that she forgets the medicine she has already taken.
Therefore as soon as she feels uncomfortable, she remembers again that she can take a pill and goes to take it.

I think the best solution, and a little uncomfortable for you is to stop leaving her medication up to her. You can leave her medicines that she needs to take in a separate box. The morning and evening doses you can give to her yourself.

In other words, you start medicating her.
