Last night I forgot to take my Depakote (actually I take generic Divalproex). I was tossing and turning in bed with racing thoughts and the impulse to write and edit. Finally, I took Sonata (once again, I take the generic version, but I do not recall the generic name) and fell asleep. This morning, I went to take my morning medication (escitalopram, generic for Lexapro) and saw that I had neglected to take last night’s dose of Divalproex. Well, no wonder I was hypomanic, had racing thoughts, and could not fall asleep. I need to take my mood stabilizer; without it my moods are, quite honestly, unstable. I hate it when I forget a dose. I am so sensitive biochemically, one missed dose can really throw me off.
Forgot to Take Meds
