Seek emergency care: Seek emergency medical attention immediately. Symptoms of overdose include tremors, agitation, excitation, seizures, and can possibly lead to death.

Lindane overdose: If you're really concerned about an overdose, you should your doctor. Lindane is toxic to nerve cells so that should be addressed. If you did one more dose that you should have, i wouldn't be too concerned about it.
