Our expert says:
Whenever you are in any doubt about an overdose, take the person to the nearest Casualty Dept for a checkup. Remember also that such drugs can interact unhelpfully with any other medicines she might have been taking.
and much depends on the amount of each drug in the pills she took, how many pills she took, whether she vomited up any of them, and so on.
Paracetamol may not make her drowsy, but can cause significant liver damage, so it could be a good idea to have a blood test done at casualty, of her liver function. Ibuprofen is in some ways like aspirin, and can cause severe stomach irritation and indigestion, even possible stomach bleeding, among other problems.
Then I notice that Lucia has very helpfully quoted a listing of side-effects and risks.
Notice that this official quote from Lucia emphasizes that the damage may grow in the days after the OD, so it is still worth getting her to casualty for a proper checkup.
Do your best to persuade her to do this ; she is an adult, which gives her the right to be very foolish if she insists, but ot would be a really bad idea for her not to have a checkup, and she shouldn't see it as doing anyone else a favour, to look after herself properly.
