Brief Answer:
She could sleep a lot. Otherwise no need to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Taking Avil 8 tablets would not cause life risk but she might sleep for prolonged durations. There is nothing to worry about it and I would insist you to let her sleep. However, if apprehensive you may feel free to visit the ER at the earliest.

Let me know if I could help further.
