Hello and thanks for posting.
Good to hear that your tolerating your medications and that you're feeling better.
Yes, you're ok. A periodic dose that's a few hours early or late won't make any difference.
The reminder systems are always a good thing- hope that works for you.
Be well in the New Year, BY
