MEDICATION QUESTION: Only two doses... not likely, however, I would suggest talking with your doctor about effective strategies to improve consistency. After all inappropriate dosing of medication accounts for millions of injuries, complications & hospitalizations every year.

Lamictal: Don't know how stable your bipolar disorder so not sure of impact. However - consider using a pill reminder app. My patients who use apps rarely if ever miss doses of their meds. Take care.
