Accidently took my night meds this morning

ahh, so annoying… I just took all my night meds, APs isntead of my morning meds. So now I have double dose of APs for the next 12 hours… I’ll be a zombie all day and then 12 hours with less AP in my system. /vent

If you’re nervous, you can call a pharmacist and make sure it’s ok

I’ve done it before, it’s been a while though. Probably has happened a handful of times in the last 6 years. Also a handful of times where I didn’t take my meds on accident. Just the nature of taking meds everyday I guess.

haha - ive actually done that - seriously not knowing what time of day it was.

Just make up a bed on the sofa - and doze on there all day infront of the tv.

No ones gonna judge you for it.

Haha - The psychologist in me, would think your brain meant you to take them for a bit of extra rest lol.

Dont worry about it. Ive been off my proverbials the past few days on high doses of Quetiapine lol.

That’s scary. Definitely need to be careful when that happens. It could potentially be dangerous depending on what you doubled up on.

:laughing: yeah maybe my brain needs the rest.
I take Seroquel as well. I take 800mg XR at night. So I guess technically I am on 1600mg at the moment. It’s probably like taking a Haldol on top of everything when I was in the hospital a long time ago.

Thats a stonking dose mate. 600mg of that on me - and its goodnight for 12 hours lol.

yeah I was on 600mg for years and then I went up to 700mg and then 6 months later 800mg. 800 is the max my psych said you can take so if that didn’t work I was going to have to to find another AP. I’ve tried 3 others and they didnt work so im lucky i can take 800. yea for sure.
