Customer Question

Hi. I have been on zoloft for one year now. Usually I take 50mg once a day at night. In error I may have taken a double dose, but am not sure. Will I be okay? Should I take my usual dose tomorrow night?

Greetings.
Welcome to the site.
I am a Psychiatrist and I believe I can help you with your query.
Well, you shall take half dose of 50 mg tomorrow night and after that continue taking 50 mg dose as usual.
This strategy will nullify the effects of overdose by tomorrow and from day after tomorrow you shall not feel any side effects of overdose.
I hope this helps.
Wish you all the best.
