How much of shit show is my life currently... I'll tell you

I've just realised today I have been taking 250mg of Sertraline a day for the past 4 weeks (possibly up to 6 weeks) and the max recommended dose a day is 200mg...

So I've just realised I have self medicated myself to a slight overdose... FFS Dave

So naturally, I now believe I am going to have serotonin syndrome and die... because health anxiety ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hi DC86UK, i am also on the max dose for Sertraline 200mg, i hope the side effects of 250mg are not too bad for you :(. You better tell your mental health nurse or doctor and get checked out.

You won’t get seratonin syndrome but as a fellow health anxiety sufferer I understand your thought process..
Though technically chronically overdosing it’s not a major overdose and your body will already have a tolerance of the drug and I am sure will cause no lasting damage at all 😊

Hi Liza9560,

I am good thank you, how are you?

I am still fighting the good fight and ploughing on. Have my moments but not as debilitating as previously.
