Hi, thanks for getting in touch. I don't think you'll have any issues if you just take your next dose at 6pm. You're on a fairly low dose and a difference of 3 hours in one day won't have any negative impact.

Expert:  Shahid Karim replied 20 days ago.

Sure I understand, you're on a low dose and 3 hours honestly won't make any difference in the slightest. I hope that helps and you feel better. All the very best :)
