is 5/8 too much

One of those; "should asked first" questions.

I am replacing drywall in part of my family room and a hallway. Bought and brought over sheets of 5/8 drywall.
Only now realized that in some places drywall will extend beyond the door frames. How should I approach this or should I worry about it at all?

If you are replacing drywall and the existing is 1/2, use 1/2. Otherwise, 5/8 will stick out proud of the door jambs by 1/8 inch and it will be impossible to reapply the casings.
