Hi,
Welcome to Ja and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. However let me reassure you that you are likely to be fine and not suffer from any severe effects because of using the drug after 4 hours instead of 12 hours. You should remain fine and the only thing that you need to do at the moment is to wait until 12 pm tomorrow to take the next dose. In addition monitor yourself for any side effects such as
Excessive drowsiness
Rapid heart beat
Irregular heart beat
Sweating
Shortness if breath
Chest pain
Dizziness
LightheadednessBut in most cases you should not experience Any side effects at all and you should be fine.
Do you have anymore questions?
