Default Exterior paint accidentally used on my interior window sill

I am not professional painter so I am seeking opinions from here. I painted my outside mailbox post then have a lot of leftover of Valspar SeasonFlex paint & primer in my bucket. I went inside my house and brushed some paint on my windowsill. After six brushes, I realized that I am using exterior paint inside. I have kept my window open for 12 hours. It is dry now. I am scared to death about how toxic this window sill is with exterior paint. Will this paint give out toxic mildewcide odor forever? Should I hire someone to replace the window sill? Please help if you ever used exterior paint inside. I am so scared!

^^^What he said^^^
Generally, exterior paints are formulated to hold up to the weather better and may not give quite as nice finish as interior paint. There should be no health concerns with what you did.

From Valspar TDS for this product

Caution
"Avoid breathing vapors, spray mist or sanding dust. If painting indoors, open windows and doors or use other means to ensure fresh air entry during application and drying".

According to the TDS, the product isn't completely restricted to exterior use. However, it does contain silica and can be considered a hazard when sanded. If you have concerns, refer to the product SDS.

Thanks for all your replies! I read “caution” part of this paint, therefore I thought it can be used for indoors. Especially the sentence “if painting indoors, open windows and doors” mislead me. I wish the label would say “do not use indoors”
