Taking meds too early

How early is too early to take your meds before the time that you take your dose?

I have taken them up to an hour before med time when I may have something going on that I won't be able to take them on time. I've never had any problems doing that.

That's a great question !
I have at times taken them as much as 3 hours before my regular time.
Its usually when I have to be some place earlier than my dose time.
P.S. Sometimes ill write down or say something that i think anyone will understand .but it backfires sometimes,please excuse anything that might be outta place.

I try to keep times within an hour or so. I don't worry too much if it is over, though. Never had a problem. Accidentally took my morning dose four hours late yesterday and my afternoon only one hour late to try to make up for the difference. Back to my normal times today.
