When To Take Medicine Again After The Drug Is Too Late To Take?
sorry I want to ask my mother to take the drug carvedilol 2 times a day which is at 7am and 7pm but she was late taking the medicine which should be consumed in the morning. whether the dose can be given at 7 o’clock in the night or from the late time of administration after 12 hours? thanks for advice
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The following are the basic standards that you can use if you are late taking drugs that must be consumed 2 times a day or every 12 hours (this benchmark cannot be used for some types of drugs, but you can use it for late consumption of carvedilol):
If your mother is late taking medication for up to 6 hours, then your mother can take the medicine as soon as your mother remembers and the next drug consumption according to the usual time your mother consumes the drug. Your mother may also reverse the time of nighttime drug consumption before she goes to bed (for example at 9 or 10 at night and continue taking her morning medication as usual (at 7 am) your evening medicine as usual, your mother can also advance her medication time (for example at 5 or 6 pm) and continue taking her morning medicine at 7 as usual If your mother has difficulty taking her medication on time, try to set an alarm on her cellphone to help considering the time of taking medicine.
I hope that I have enough information to answer
