I started my hep c treatment on Nov 13th, and have not missed any doses till yesterday. I've had very little side effects. Yesterday, Nov 21, I took my 6 AM dose, and took my 2 PM dose with the required fat and when my cell alarm went off, I thought I took my 10 PM dose, when I got a family phone call. This morning I found I had missed the 10 PM dose of incivek. I took the 6 AM dose, and at 10 AM took one of the incivek pills I had missed . At 2 PM, I took the proper dose, and at 5 PM took the other pill I had missed. I will take the proper 10PM dose soon. How bad did I screw up, by missing one dose, and then catching up? I will be extra vigilant in the future. John TexNM PS I worked all day at my restaurant and felt fine.

"... What happens if I miss a dose?
If you are less than 4 hours late in taking your medicine, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose."
