Took Depakote And Lamictal At 4pm Instead Of 8am. Should I Take The Dose At 8pm?

Took Depakote And Lamictal At 4pm Instead Of 8am. Should I Take The Dose At 8pm?

I am so nervous. I missed my dose at 8 a.m. and cannot get ahold of my doctor. I take 500 mg of Depakote and 200 mg of Lamictal at 8am. and my next dose of 1000 mg of Depakote and 200 mg of Lamictal is at 8p.m. Should I take it or wait till tomorrow morning?

That has happened to me just recently I took my nightime dose of medicine in the morning and my daytime dose in the nightime. My neroligest nurse said it was o.k. to take the doseges like that and then resume your normal doseges as you would normally take them.

I think their timing is too close together 4 PM to 8 PM the timing is to close together if you took your 8pm medications. and you said 12 hours, so I would wait in the morning 8 o’clock set your alarm. I think you’ll be fine because you have your medication in your system still. Just try to not think about it and go to sleep. That’s what my husband tells me when I screw up like that.
