Can Ibuprofen cause adverse reactions for my mom?

My mom is a heart patient and has a prolonged history of diabetes. Yesterday I gave her Ibuprofen for tooth pain and she has been feeling very sleepy after takin it. Can this medicine have adverse reactions for her?

If you take for a long time, yes, but produces kidney failure and gastritis. But for 1 tab, I don't think it can produce any problems, especially sleep issues.
