Siego may have ingested 100 mg/60 lbs = 1.67 mg/lb. I generally don't become concerned until at least 9 mg per pound of sertraline (Zoloft) is ingested - 540 mg for Siego. You might see transient vomiting, diarrhea, hypersalivation, or lethargy arise but Siego would remain safe. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
