So I have been on some TKI treatement for 9 months and have NEVER missed a dose. Tonight I was distracted and talking during my normal time and I honestly cannot remember if I took it or not. The glass of water I got from the fridge is sitting on the table next to me ready to take it. But my mind is telling me I already took it? Or was it another night at home I am getting confused with. I immediately counted my pills to find that the two I would have taken tonight are still in the bottle. So now I am really confused my brain is telling me I already took it while the bottle is saying no you didn't. I am panic'd because what if I double dose on Tasigna at 400 MG that could be a really ugly site. So I have been trying to decide what to do for over 30 minutes. I was scheduled to take it at 10:15 and that has come and gone.
Like I said I am anal about this and never miss a single dose. I know missing tonight just to be safe will not hurt but man it sucks being on a drug your life depends on. This is really scary.
I felt missing a dose is safer than double dosing. I also look at this as an opportunity to change my dosing schedule anyway. So I will be moving from 10/10 to 6/6
