Fortunate: Fortunately, you took double dose of the right drug. The 250mg of Zoloft (sertraline) is very unlikely to cause you any problems, but the Lamictal could have. I do not feel that you would be adversely affected by skipping your Lamictal today. If you happen to feel you need it, then take 1/2 the dose. Start a new day tomorrow.
