Okay: As long as you take them each day it should be fine. It will cause no harm to take them at different times of day. We usually recommend that people take them at the same time every day because it helps them remember if they get into a habit of taking them at the same time every day.

Same time is best: Although nothing harmful will happen if Lamictal and Zoloft (sertraline) are not taken exactly at the same time each day, it is best to have a regular habit that is followed which is associated to taking the medicine. For example, take the pills after brushing your teeth each morning. Is this worry related to your diagnosis of hypochondriasis? Address it with your therapist.

Not dangerous: No, it is not dangerous to take those two medicines at the same time.

Dose timing: It is not dangerous or harming either way. However, it might be easier to remember to take medication once a day, than twice.
