Yes, you should be concerned because the maximum dosage for most patients is 1800mg/day if prescribed by a doctor.
You should seek immediate medical attention or call the Poison Hotline @ 1-800-222-1222.
Early signs of toxicity are vomiting, diarrhea, drowsiness, muscle weakness, or loss of coordination.
