Brief Answer:
take her to ER

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking.
After going through the current and past history, my opinion is as follows:
1. She is prone to get arrhythmia, high blood pressure, coma, fever, agitations, anxiety, neurological problems etc.
2. If she has taken on an empty stomach, it will be severe.
3. She will require activated charcoal and beta blockers and extensive symptom control. Take her to hospital emergency immediately.

Any further queries, ready to help again.
