Are you taking it for mood stabilization only?

Or for seizures?

If it's for mood stabilization only, then you should be fine as long as you get it this evening.

Don't double up on your doses though. Like, trying to make up for the missed doses or anything.

(sorry I'm having trouble with my words. Hope that came out right)

i'm sorry, i don't remember what mood stabilizer you're on. is it lamictal?

i've missed doses of all my mood stabilizers at one point or another, and i've been on most of them. i've never had a seizure from missing a dose. the odds of that are low from missing one dose or even two. cutting cold turkey raises your risk, but it isn't like it automatically will give you a seizure or something. i've run across numbers on it before and don't remember where.

you'll be fine. just take it as soon as you remember, unless it is too close to your next scheduled dose, then just wait and take your scheduled dose.

i've missed lamictal for a month and was fine (manic, but no seizures). my clinic ran out and i did taper down because i knew it would be awhile before i'd get more, but the taper was fast. i wouldn't recommend it obviously, but i'm fine.

Loon, at first I thought you mean literally cutting cold turkey (like with a knife)... hahah.

I've missed two doses of Lamictal before. I felt like I was swimming and bobbing up and down in water, touching the sand at the bottom, and comming back up, my breath was even racing during most of this time. I took one dose, when I was supposed to (my evening dose) and felt fine a half hour later.
