When my on daughter was 2 years old, she managed to open the child proof cap on my zoloft bottle and had them all over the place. She was only by her self in the room for a minute or two, so we dont know how many she might have taken, if she took anyway, but, we couldnt find all the pills so not knowing if she took any or not, we took her to the hospital. After 5 hours of testing and exams and waiting around, the doctors said that she was fine, didnt appear to take any, and even if she did, Zoloft isnt the type of drug that will hurt you even if you took a whole handful. You might get zoned out, but it will wear off after a while and you will be fine. We were glad to hear that.
So Im not saying you should take as many as you want, but from that night I understand that you cant OD, Die, or get permanent damage of any kind from taking to much zoloft.
At one time I myself was at one time prescribed to be on 300mg a day , and on a couple occasions I didnt recall if I took them or not, and was feeling depressed, so I ended up taking 600 mg by accident. I was totally zoned out and non functional for a while, just wanted to sleep for about 14 hours. But no repercussions.
But I would still highly suggest checking into it with an MD first. Its never a good idea to take too much..
