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.

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.

Can anything deadly or harmful for the body happen If you don't take zoloft (sertraline) and lamictal the same time every day? Or is this just irrational anxiety?

No: As long as you don't take either medication too close together. I often prescribe Zoloft (sertraline) at bedtime as it may be sedating for soe people. Lamictaliusually prescribe in am. Themost important thing is that you take both daily on a consistent basis. Relax take some deep breathes and know tht we are here on Healthtap 24/7 to answer your questions
