Missed Tec Dose

Hello!
Does anyone know what counts as “close to your next dose” for tecfidera. I missed my morning dose (doh!) and just automatically took my missed dose at 3:30pm but now I’m wondering – does that count as too close to my evening dose at 8pm. Online it says skip the tablet if you’re too close to the next dose but what is too close? 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours?? I could potentially wait until 10pm tonight to take the dose. Any suggestions would be very welcome as I can’t seem to find the info I need online.
Thanks so much!!

Hi,
As long as there is 4 hours between doses you are fine to take your 2 nd dose .
Initially in trials Tec was given 3 times a day and no side effects but no benefit either hence why 2 doses .
Hope this helps x

thanks @mamalou70. 4 hours rings a bell actually! I only started on tec last month and have only been GI side effects free for 2 weeks so didn’t want to screw up my hockey match tomorrow by making myself sick! thank you!!

4h between doses in the minimum like @mamalou70 is saying @whittytara.
