    You should never skip doses, especially ones like Adderall or for your mood, and especially a whole day altogether. If you do miss a dose, DO NOT take it along with the next dose. And you can call a pharmacy to find out about Midol and Benadryl, although I can say for sure that the above mentioned doses are extremely high and if you are feeling suicidal then you should call 911.

    Sorry for thinking you were suicidal; I just couldn’t figure out any other reason for someone taking 16 Benadryl. 🙂

    You’re taking a lot of medication already. Adderall in combination with mood stabilizers seems like a bad combination to me already.
    However, to offer official advice, If you’re taking an SSRI (Prozac, sertraline/zoloft, lexapro, etc) you shouldn’t skip a day of that medication.
    Stimulant medication can be skipped for a day, or as frequently as you need, as that medication is typically on a need-to dosing basis.
