Hello,
Dear customer
Welcome to justanswer.com and thank you for your question.
I can understand your concern. I will do whatever I can to help answer your questions
Zoloft contains sertraline which is an antidepressant in a group of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).
The recommended dose of sertraline is 25-200 mg once daily.
The prescribed dosage for you was 100 mg & when you just went to take a Tylenol and accidentally you took Zoloft instead. It means in total you have took 200 mg of zoloft instead of 100 mg.
Symptoms that can occur from zoloft overdosage are: drowsiness,vomiting,increased heart rate,fainting,diziness.
If you develop any of these symptoms or any other symptom that cause great discomfort,then you need to go to ER.
Usually & most likely a single tablet of overdosage does not cause side effects.
So bot***** *****ne is that you just need to keep a watch over your symptoms.
Hope this helped.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.
Thank you *****
Dr. Robert

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.

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.
