Thanks for the query.

10 tablets of Naxdom has been taken 12 hrs ago.
Naxdom contains domperidone and naxproxen sodium. It is used as a pain killer and for vomiting.

It is quite XXXXXXX and it can cause drowsiness at first but later lead to respiratory depression and affect the Central nervous system (CNS).

For certain overdoses, other medicine may need to be given either to serve as an antidote to reverse the effects of what was taken or to prevent even more harm from the drug that was initially taken.

It is better if you take her to the emergency room as soon as possible and have her given a stomach wash as soon as possible.

Do not try to make her vomit or give anything to eat or drink.
Take the drug or pills she has taken to the emergency room.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available for follow up queries.

Wishing you good health.
