Likely fine: This is a dangerous thing to do. You watch your heart rate or any signs of weakness. If your heart rate stays between 60 and 100 you should be ok. Please get a pill dispenser.

? overdose: Assuming you simply took two of everything - i doubt you will have any bad side effects. The Propranolol will reduce your heart rate and BP - so you might feel lightheaded or dizzy and have a slower pulse. The synthroid - no worries. And the same for the zoloft. The wellbutrin (bupropion) may cause you to be a little jumpy but again probably nothing to worry about just figure out what happened.

To avoid this problem (it's more common than you might think), get some marked pill boxes from your pharmacy and fill them with your daily meds. That way, if you don't know if you took them already, you can easily find out.

You should be ok: Although you should always take your medications as prescribed by your doctor, the extra dose of the medications that you took are still in the therapeutic range; however , if you feel light headed , has palpitation, or has any unusual symptoms, you should contact your doctor or go to the nearest emergency room for evaluation.
