Yes: You should be fine. If you were to need an increase in your medication, 300mg daily would be the next step so it is not uncommon for people to go from taking 1 to taking 2 tablets a day. You did not overdose by taking 2 tablets. You may experience side effects despite this still being a safe dose, however and those include insomnia or restlessness/irritability.

For depression: TMS is a treatment for depression. It is very well tolerated and may work when medications do not. In one study, about 60% get better w/ the treatment and about 40% have no symptoms of depression after the treatment. It works by stimulating a part brain which modulates mood, called the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. It is beginning to be covered by more insurances. I highly recommend it.

TMS, ECT: Also, consider transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) or electroconvulsive therapy (ECT).
