missing a dose

Posted , 3 users are following.

I somehow misplaced my tabs upon noticing called drs. As depression/anxiety isnt an emergency had to skip dose last night. Will this cause any problems?

    Missing a dose isn't a good idea, though it shouldn't cause you too much of a problem, but you might start to feel sick and get a headache.  I wouldn't miss any more than one dose though.

    Depression / anxiety isn't an emergency no, but you can become quite ill if you miss a few doses, and some people even feel ill after missing one.If you do find yourself without tablets and can't get any (ie a weekend etc) then I'd go to your chemist and talk to them, or the Out of Hours Emergency clinic because it can become quite unpleasant if you miss a few doses.

      Yes sounds like the headache was from missing the medicine.  Other than making you feel ill, there shouldn't be any other problems.

      Hope you feel ok soon :-)

    I can second that Clare, I missed mine Friday before last and felt like (well you know!). I posted a "Don't forget yer repeat prescription or taking them" discussion.

    It was awful, but better again after 4 days and now well back on track!

    None of us are perfik!

    Hope things get better very soon!
