can I take it now, and it will be ok? Von-1
I've done both strategies (either taken the missed dose ASAP or skipped it), Von-1, with all the meds I have taken.
You know some of my background, but I started on Celexa, then my GP moved me to Lexapro when it came out because it was supposedly "better," and, when the Lexapro pooped out, I moved to Cymbalta. Which has now pooped out, and I'm trying Celexa again, since it worked for me in the beginning. This happened over the span of 10 years.
The touchiest med I was on was Cymbalta. Since it has a half-life of 12 hours, I could really feel it if I skipped two doses by accident (didn't happen often, but a few times). Lexapro has a half-life of 27-32 hours, so even if you skip one dose, you should not really notice much of a problem. At least, I never did.
