Advice in what's the best time schedule for the Meds?

Hey Everyone haven't been on the post for a few months hopefully everybody is having improvements and succeeding with treatment against this horrible virus.I'm finally starting my  Victrelis combination therapy I suppose have began a few months ago but had more delays and family emergencies.
Wanted to ask you guys a good time frame for taking the meds? My doctor and pharmacy both gave me options taking them every 8 hrs within a 24 hour period here's what my pharmacy said I could do. 8am 4pm 12am or 9am 5pm 1am what do you guys think? Should I go earlier( have issues waking up early but working on it since it's tough falling asleep at a decent time)
Thank you always for your time
Berny
Best wishes and prayers for all in the upcoming year

I started with a 7-3-11 schedule and hated having to stay up so late for my last dose. At Daylight savings I changed to a 6-2-10 schedule and found it much better. Waking up at 5:30 to eat was no fun but as soon as I took the pills at 6:00 I'd go back to sleep.

I was on Incivek, not Victrellis, but the dosing schedule was the same as what you outlined.

I was on Incivek. I did 6am, 2pm, 10pm and like Reid, had difficulty staying awake to take those 10pm pills. I always had alarms and timers sitting around and set to be sure I did not miss any doses.

I hated getting up at 5:30 to eat, but I did and then took my pills after eating, and then, just like Reid, went back to bed, LOL.

If you work, it would be advisable to try to coordinate the timing so you can get the pills in and also work. If you work it would be advisable to buy a programmable watch so you do not get busy and forget. If at home, the timer or alarm clocks work fine.

I was on victrellis and also did the 6-2-10 schedule. Didn't like getting up early but I did it and went back to sleep til I got up for work. I was sleep deprived thru treatment because of this crazy schedule but it was best for me.
Good luck!
