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
