She needs to be sent to the hospital for at least two reasons.
One is that she will need good monitoring to rule out poisoning and serious problems related to this. She may have ingested even a higher number of tablets.
The second reason is related to possible suicidal ideas, plans and actions. She may be having severe depression which may be causing her suicidal attempts. This is an emergent situation and needs prompt and fast intervention.

I hope this answers your query. I remain at your disposal in case further medical assistance is needed.
