Do you just skip it or do you try to make it up somehow? Does missing one dose mess up your moods?

My doctor told me I was a brittle bipolar, meaning I can't miss any meds without it really throwing me off. I'm upset because I have been doing perfect, taking them, every day exactly on time and last night I couldn't find my lithium. I found it this morning but for some reason I just couldn't find where it last night so I've missed a dose. I was really depressed for several weeks so I don't want this to throw me back into a depression. I can't make up a dose with lithium so I just have to skip it and get back on track. I'm hoping it doesn't affect me too much.

I usually take mine first thing of the morning if I remember mid day I just take it then.

If i miss a dose I can tell a difference in my moods and how i react to stuff.

I take mine at night. If I fall asleep without them I usually wake up a few hours later and realize that's why I'm awake. So I take them then
