Forgetting to take a dose of Diovan 160

Hello, hoping someone could advise me here. I take Diovan 160 early every morning, and have religiously every day since mid-July. Today, for the first time, I forgot to take it. What would you suggest I do? Take one now (it's 6:30 pm) or just start up again tomorrow morning? Thanks for any help!

Re: Forgetting to take a dose of Diovan 160

They usually tell U if U are close to the normal time, like 2 to 4 hrs. take it, but if U take it very early in the a.m. I would wait. I also forgot to take mine once, so I called my pharmacist and he told me to wait. If it were me, I would even try to take it an hr. or so ealier then normal, as I don't think it will mess anything up, then just get back on your normal schedule.

People get too worried if they miss one dose . Don't worry about it and take it in the morning when you get up .
