Is it SR or XL? Most prescribers use them these days for the very reason that they have a low risk of seizures.

I would call your doctor and stay close (in fact, stay at home)

It will add a minimum to your plasma level which is the real concern.

A seizure (petit mal) by itself is not necessarily life threatening if you are sedentary and not operating machinery.

A seizure can also be a momentary loss of time, as if time passed and one didn't realize it.

But I'm not trying to write all this to scare you, it is just prudent I think.

The chances of seizure are still low and I doubt you can throw it up after that point safely.


A tray organizer is the best thing (mea culpa, I haven't been doing what I should be doing lately) to prevent what anyone can do with medication.

Its toxicity that would be more of a worry, and some TCAs fall in that category (please, the community, don't go there if you catch what I mean, its unpleasant)

It should pass in a short time and your doctor may instruct you to skip a dose, possibly. Don't decide that on your own though.
