Took night medications instead of morning medications


Recommended Posts

I have just taken my night medications

  • Seroquel xr 800mg
  • Lithium 1000mg
  • Lamictal 100mg

Instead of my morning meds

  • Prozac 40mg
  • Lamictal 200mg

What should I do? Should I take my morning ones as well now? What about tonight?

I'm such an idiot, never did this before!!

Any ideas.....???????

Thanks

I've come so close to doing this before, you're not the only one.  If you can and you trust your pharmacist, I'd reach out to him/her initially.  If that person isn't trustworthy or is unwilling to answer, I'd probably call your pdoc.  I could give you my best guess, but there's no way to guarantee it's safe. 

Maybe today will involve lots of sleeping?

Happens to the best of us, rowan.

I would second the "ask your pharmacist" question. And if that doesn't yield helpful information, I would consider finding out if my GP or psych as a 24 hour nurse line. They can be a good resource as well.

I've done the same thing before.  Do you take care of the kids today?

No, don't double up.  When I did this (took wrong pills at the wrong time) I just missed the other ones and got back on schedule the next morning.  For me at least, missing one dose of a med didn't hurt me and I was fine the next day.  Just don't double up.

Thank you both for replying!!

I got in touch with an on call pdoc who advised me to just take the Prozac at the usual time today and only take the Lamictal tonight, not the other medications. She also told me to drink and to drink plenty of fluids. 

I am feeling nauseous and very tired. I slept all afternoon.

Hi Melissa. No I'm not looking after the kiddies today thankfully!

One thing I learned don't take your SO's meds.  Then realize it and take your own.  The comination of too many blood pressure pills and her estrogen really made for a great traffic stop.

"Do you know why I stopped you sir?"

Me - "No... Not really.  What did I do?"

Cop - "You crossed over the ghost line on the side of the road a number of times.  Sir is there any reason you were driving this way?"

Me - "Yes... (waaaa) DRUGS"

Cop (Stupified that I was honest), "What kinds of drugs?"

Me - "My bloodpressure pills and hers.  I feel woozy"

Cop - "How far away is home?"

Me - "4 or 5 blocks away"

Cop - "Your going to drive home directly and no trips tonight.  ok?"

Me - "Waa your so nice......  Am I really free to go?"

Cop - " yes..."

Me - "Can I ask you a question?"

Cop - "what?"

Me - "Why are you letting me off scott free?"

Cop - "you told the truth - now be careful next time.
