A 27-year-old male asked:

Hi. if you dont take zoloft (sertraline) & lamictal the same time every day, can this cause too much medicine in your blood? or is this just an irrational fear?

Not generally a prob: Taking these meds at about the same time daily is best and keeps your level steady, unless you take them just hours apart probably not too much med, more an issue of possibly not enough, and subsequent inconsistent effect. Just generally the same time is usually not a pbm
