First time I forgot to give my kiddos their Depakote and I'm freaking out!!

Both of my children have seizure disorders and they are on the same dosage. Tonight as I was getting them ready for bed I realized I didn't give them this morning's dose! I know you're supposed to give them their usual next dose (which I did) and not give them extra to make up for the missed dose BUT I am super-worried that missing this morning's dose is going to mess up their little systems and make them have a seizure :(
Has this happened to anyone else???
Thanks in advance....

Just keep an eye on them and keep giving them the medicine as directed. If it was going to do anything, it probably would have done it by now. Don't stress out. My 6 month old has seizures and is on Keppra. There have been a couple of times that I wasn't sure if I had given him his medicine. I just kept a close eye on him and made sure to give it to him when he needed it.
