Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.com

This is Dr. John and I will be helping you today.

I will be reviewing your question and will respond shortly.

I may need to ask a few more questions in order to best serve you.

Thank you for your patience.

Answers here are for education and information only.

I have a few more questions to ask, is that ok?

Ask Your Own Health Question

what time did you take the 2 doses of the Zoloft?

Started that a week ago
I have been on the Zoloft 100mg for over 3 months

and at what time do you take the lamotrigine?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
11am
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Since I've been taking this for about 4 months and it has built up a tolerance already if I just go back to 100 mg tomorrow will I be okay

So the 200 mg Zoloft would not be considered an overdose fortunately, but obviously a higher dose than what you are used to.

You may notice some shakiness and possibly mild tremors or anxiousness today, but that should subside by this afternoon/evening.

If you have more severe symptoms, then I would recommend going to the ER for further evaluation.

Ask Your Own Health Question

and yes, you should be ok to go back to the 100 mg dose tomorrow.

I would suggest getting a weekly pill box to put your medications in, and that will help in the future from taking a second dose of medications.

Ask Your Own Health Question

Does that make sense?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Because Zoloft takes time to build up in your system up being a little bit won't hurt and I should go back to normal tomorrow taking 100 mg just like I have been normal

yes, the 200 mg Zoloft should not cause any long-term issue

Ask Your Own Health Question

but obviously go back to your 100 mg dose starting tomorrow.

Of course one more thing could I take a ambian to help

I would NOT recommend ambien or other drugs that are sedating since that may interfere with the metabolism of the zoloft.

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
I meant lorazepam

no, I would not recommend lorazepam either.

Ask Your Own Health Question

does that make sense?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
just need something to calm me down though. What do you suggest?

I would recommend calling your doctor that prescribed the zoloft and lamotrigine

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
