Of course for certainty I'll ask my docs,but I guess one hour late isn't a big deal. Of course I'll be taking them at that time all every day.
I just started vocational school and they last till 8,and I take mine at nine,though the time will change yet again 😑. So I thought taking them one hour later so I don't have to take my pills out (which btw need food as well to take) and make it cleat during class,lol.

Why must you ask your doctor?  There is no reason that you can't change the timing of when you take your meds by one hour.  I take my meds, each day, within a 4 hour window.  You doctor most likely only cares that you take them EACH AND EVERY DAY.

I actually take them by the minute Haha,I think I'm overreacting of not getting drug resistance.
I get paranoid of some simple things,lol.
Thanks guys for reassuring me 💚💚💚

Monday to Friday I take my meds approx 6.30 am, usually similar Saturday too, but Sundays I have a relax, donít wake as early and take them by 9am ish. Iím guessing a few hours once a week wonít make much of a difference?

I know if I forgot a dose Iíve still an 18 hour window but thankfully Iím
Very accurate with my times above.

I think Iíll say it depends on the Medication. Iím on Triumeq and itís amazing. I used to take it at noon but switched to before bed. The doc said a few hours here or there isnít big as long as itís relatively consistent. So if you move it 2 hours and stay there for a few weeks then Iím sure you will be on.

Basically I want to have it permanently like that. It makes it easier to get my meds at that time,since I know I'm at home at that time and that I am not at work or at school,without getting paranoid haha.
