What are the side effects of Metaxalone overdose?

My daughter was prescribed Metaxalone 800MG tablets to be taken 1 tablet by mouth 3 times a day for 10 days.She was told by her doctor to take the tablets before bedtime. She thought she should take 3 tablets at bed time so she did. She took the 3 tablets around 11:30 p.m and she awoke me at 5:30 a.m laughing and talking. She stated that she had thrown up earlier. I m concern that taking the 3 pills at a time could harm her. Thoughts?
