I put 10 seachem florish root tabs in my 40g tank.. This is beyond what the package recommends. Have I overdosed my tank? Could this lead to problems with my fish?

Most likely will lead to water clarity problem's and as mentioned above ,with too much light either in intensity, or duration,,lead to algae bloom.
I believe these tab's to be comprised of largely iron and maybe some trace element's but I am not sure .
Maybe add some fast growing water sprite to the surface or rooted in substrate to help gobble up whatever they are comprised of?

I don't know about seachem root tabs but with the O+ tabs the nitrate will spike if you put too many. My nitrate went up to 160 after i added too many O+ tabs in 36g tank, i think i added about 10-12 tabs ..
