Gilenya timings

Hi everyone,
I’m going on holiday tomorrow and when I started Gilenya I was told to take it at the same time everyday.
I take it at 8:30am so in Mexico that will be 2:30am.
Do I need to stick to the precise time or can I take it as soon as I’m up?
Thanks

@rose93 , you could plan to start amending your schedule by an hour a day, a couple of days before you fly out.

That should phase in the time difference.

Then do the same on the return journey.

Have a great time.

Oh dear, we fly in the morning.
I’ll just have to take it & go back to bed haha!!
Thanks for the advice

@rose93 , I’m sure you’ll be fine if you had a break of 9 hours between doses or 15 hours.
