Polypharmacy: Why are you asking this? Please don't take "a load" of this stuff. A large dose of thyroxine, ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) and caffeine (esp the last 2) will make you very nervous, jittery, palpitations, insomnia. It could exacerbate other conditions. Sertraline in overdose can cause similar symptoms, also nausea/vomiting. Possibly dangerous. What's going on? Please see your doctor.
