Missed a Dose of Victrelis. :(

This is my first missed dose in 14+ weeks. Lately I'm in bed by 9 PM a lot and I set my alarm for 11 PM to take my 4 caps with a snack. A couple days ago I got up, had my snack and went back to bed still half asleep. In the morning, there were the 4 Victrelis caps. I forgot to take them. How important is this?

I wouldn't sweat it Carl, I don't think missing 1 dose is going to be detrimental to your treatment however I wouldn't make a habit of it, nothing you can do about it now anyway, but move on.

Have a great day

               i was on incivek.  i was admitted to the hospital at the start of my 3rd week.  the staff could not get me any incivek. the gastro on call couldnt help me until morning. i went about 18 hrs before i got my next dose.  they ran my v/l a few days later and i was und. at 3 weeks.  
                please dont think a missed dose is ok. after that situation i started carrying 3 blister paks(6 pills) every time i left home.   keep a few pills on your boat.

I try to remember to have the pills with me every day. The little daily bottles help. They do go on the boat with me since I take a dose at 3 PM. I have a bottle in front of this computer right now!
