If i take my pill at 8 in the morning and the time changes and moves an hour back im i supposed to still take it at 8 in the morning or now at 7 in the morning if the hour changed back?
DayLight saving time does that affect the time I take my pill?

No, you dont have to, in Nursing, we are taught that you have an hour window each way to give a timed med. If a med is due at 8am, it can be taken anywhere from 7am to 9 am and be considered on time. If you are speaking of birth control pills, they are not that sensitive to time. It is recommeded that you take them at roughly the same time every day but it doesnt have to be spot on. Even if you forgot a pill until the evening, you would still be okay. You just dont want to consistantly, every day, be irratic as to when you take your pill. So long as it is roughly the same time of day on most days, you are okay.
