Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for his problem.
Ideally, there should be a gap of 24 hours as he takes medicines once a day.
So it would come at night when he should repeat the dose.
Taking it in the morning would create overdose.
Otherwise, he can take a few hours earlier in the evening & gradually come to fix it in morning over a few days.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish him good health.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
Regards.
