Sometimes missing a tablet can make you feel a little odd, but it's likely there is no harm done. I keep my pills in one of those little pill organizers that very old people have that have the days of the week on it, that way I don't get muddled and forget it (or take it twice). I am on duloxetine and I missed three days worth when I was in hospital because they didn't have it and I did have more vivid dreams. I am back on it now and feel fine. Hope you feel better soon.

i also use one of those old people boxes that's how i know i missed a dose i was struggling to remember on a daily bases and once almost took too much, as i forgot id been up earlier. so the little box with days on helps me even if it makes me feel stupid it also means other family members can give a gentle reminder.
