  • Hi Vivian

    The general rule on missed meds is to take the missed dose if it is within 4 hours of the normal time, after 8 hours, wait for the next dose.  Do check with your Tx team as they become available.  These meds tend to stay in your system for a while and you should be fine (I'd be freaking out more with the hurricane!)

  • Can you call your tx team and ask? If you are not able to get through, then I think you can take it now and then take rest of the doses at 11.30 hrs gap until you reach your normal meds time. 

  • If you can get in touch with your transplant team for advice, that is what I would do. Hope you are safe.
    • Thank you for your responses, I'm ok!
      Hurricane was a huge scare, no power for the last 40 Hours but we are alive and good ! I was so glad I was off dialysis for this one !
