Hello again

This is no problem, however I have worked out a fuller answer for you below.

1. Ideally Interceptor Flavor Tabs should be administered monthly, preferably on the same date each month. However for you the best thing to do is to dose Molly now and then carry on the monthly dosing regime starting one month from today.

2. Even if you did give the dose on September the first the additional dose today will not cause any harm.

Dr Scott
