she needs immediate medical attention.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query at XXXXXXX
I understand your concern.

Yes Dolo ingestion at that high doses can cause serious adverse effects.
Initial dolo toxicity patient will be asymptomatic.
As time progress patient will present with symptoms of nausea, vomiting , abdominal pain, and liver dysfunction later.

My recommendation would be she needs immediate medical attention without any delay. Gastric decontamination with specific antidote can prevent further damage.

Any further information you can ask me at follow up query.
