Probably OK: Kay, you are probably fine. Since you are already on a relatively low dose of Zoloft, (sertraline) doubling the dose by accident is unlikely to cause any adverse effects. I would go to sleep tonight and see how you feel in the morning. If you do not feel good in the morning, consider going to the ED or contacting your physician. In general you should be fine.

Its ok: you are on a very low dose of zoloft (sertraline). one extra dose will not be problematic. resume your normal dose tomorrow.

Do NOT worry: This would be a total daily dose of 50 mg, which is actually a rather low dose, and you should have almost trivial consequences.
