What Do You Do When You Miss A Dose Of Your Medication?

What Do You Do When You Miss A Dose Of Your Medication?

If you miss your morning dose do you take it when you realise or do you wait until your next dose is due?

I take medication three times a day. If I forget my morning I’ll just take my afternoon and my bedtime pills. It goes the same way with if I forget my afternoon I’ll take my nighttime. Now if I Forget to take my morning pills and realize it before noon for example say 11:30 AM I will take the morning pills and wait in extra hour for my afternoon and then when it’s bedtime I’ll wait an extra hour to take my bedtime pills because I have alarms set to when to take my medications.
So if you forget to take your medication just Wait until you have to take it again. I feel like it’s not going to hurt you. I’ve done it multiple times of forgetting my morning or my afternoon or my night and I was fine, because like I said I take my medication three times a day and I still have medication in my system.

I think it depends how much meds you take. If you take a high dose I wouldn't take both of them at once. I know taking my doses close together makes me extremely tired.

I actually missed last nights dose I didn’t realise until late in the morning so I forgot about that dose and just waited for my morning dose now if it was my morning dose and I remembered I would take it as long as it’s not too long until my next dose x x
