I know this topic has come up before but I can't find the old threads. I want to take my INF on Thursday instead of my usual Friday. I just can't stand the thought of travelling with meds one more time. I'm pretty sure its ok to take the shot a day early. I can't remember if I should continue taking the INF on Thursdays from then on or do I go back to Friday next week.
jd, I recall that thread. And I recall that the answer was that doing the INF shot a day earlier was okay as INF "lives" for 7 days in the body however on that basis, if changing the day to one earlier, you need to keep to that day moving forward as well to keep the 7 day limitation on maintaining your INF level in your body. I may not be using all the right terminology there, however that is the gist of it, if I recall.
My guess is that most docs would say moving it a day ahead doesn't matter, but personally I agree with Trish and believe that the prudent thing would be to leave the shot night at Thursday once the switch is made.
