Meds question - December 7th 2018, 11:05 AM

So I know we aren't professionals and you can't really know for sure...But I thought I would as anyways.

How far apart should we take meds for it not to be dangerous. So like I just took my nigh pills, what I mean by that is I only take pills and night and they work for the day and it's 3am and I will try to take them tonight around 11 because I need to get my sleep back on schedule...Do you guys think this is harmful or is it okay? I do this every so often when my system is all screwed up.

All medicine have a lifespan in our bodies. Some meds have a life of six hours while others have a life of 21 hours. It varies by the medication and their purpose. I know my night medication, I have to take at a specific time because they have a lifespan of about 11-14 hours and it takes between 1-3 hours to begin working.

I think your best bet is to call your pharmacist and ask about the specific medicine because that is what my mom does when I get off schedule a bit with my meds. I would think however you would be OK with most meds with that being if I counted correctly 20 hours in between doses.

It seems to me that no less that 3 or 4 hours should pass before you could take another piill, too much meds are dangerous!
