Hi vidhya;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The common adverse effects are nausea;vomiting;epigastric pain/discomfort;dizziness;rashand even cardiac effects .If she has any of these symptoms then you get her to consult a doctor.As it is the prescribed dosage is around10-15 mg /kg of body weight so if she took 3 tablets it may be slightly more than double.Just watch out if she has any symptoms otherwise there will not be much problem.In case of problem get her to a hospital for treatment.
Thanks
