I'm bipolar I.

In terms of psych meds, it depends. I take risperdal twice a day, lithium twice a day and cymbalta once a day (in the morning). If I miss a lithium or risperdal dose, nothing big happens. If I miss my morning dose of cymbalta, by about 3/4pm I start feeling like I'm coming down with the flu. Mood-wise, I'm not sure how long it takes to destabilize because I haven't been off my meds more than a day in /years/.
