Yes.: It takes a while, missing lots of doses before the symptom you were trying to relieve will reappear. It sounds like you're on it as a mood stabilizer. Just take the medicine when you realize you've missed it and take the next dose on the same scheduled dose.

I agree, it does not mean that you don't need the Lamictal as a mood stabilizer.

Talk to your psych: I would personally stop the Cymbalta gradually while adding in saphris, (asenapine) latuda, depakote, or fanapt. Discuss with your psychiatrist first.
