Hi vidhya;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The common adverse effects are nausea;vomiting;epigastric pain/discomfort;dizziness;rashand even cardiac effects .If she has any of these symptoms then you get her to consult a doctor.As it is the prescribed dosage is around10-15 mg /kg of body weight so if she took 3 tablets it may be slightly more than double.Just watch out if she has any symptoms otherwise there will not be much problem.In case of problem get her to a hospital for treatment.
Thanks

Hi, can I ask you a question I am so worried about my father. He is on a 1 dose of ecosprin 150 and 1 dose of levipil 500 a day. But he mistakenly took 2 doses of each in one day and I think it was about one hour apart. He thought he didn t take them but he ended up taking two doses of each. Is there any danger of this? What should I do now.
