Hi there. I can understand that it would be worrisome if you accidentally took 4 tablets (80mg) today, instead of your normal dose (20mg). Acute overdosage has rarely been reported. Generally doses of at least 6 times the normal dose (>240mg) were required to produce toxic over dose effects such as shaking, tremor, dizziness and in rare cases seizures. Rarely, some heart rhythm abnormalities occur. Since you have not taken a dose that high it is unlikely that you'll experience any toxic effects. However, if you notice any unusual effects in the next couple days I would immediately seek medical attention. I would also recommend calling poison control for specific guidance and more reassurance. They are the experts here. This is a toll free call 1-***-***-****, or go online at poison.org. I hope I provided you with the information you needed and pointed you in the right direction. Please let me know if you have any more questions. Also, please kindly rate my answer as soon as you are able. Thank you.

What Customers are Saying:

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

KevinBeaverton, OR

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!!
