(see details) Should I now take my weekly medication on Saturday or still take it on Friday?

I usually take my Trulicity on Fridays and I just remembered I missed yesterday's dose so I'm taking it now, it's Saturday.

    Every time you pick up a prescription, it comes with an information sheet. That information sheet covers all kinds of things including what to do when you miss a dose. The information is also easily found on the internet - on the manufacturer's website or drugs.com for example.

    From drugs.com for the Trulicity Pen

    "If a dose is missed, instruct patients to administer as soon as possible if there are at least 3 days (72 hours) until the next scheduled dose. If less than 3 days remain before the next scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and administer the next dose on the regularly scheduled day. In each case, patients can then resume their regular once weekly dosing schedule.

    The day of weekly administration can be changed if necessary as long as the last dose was administered 3 or more days before."

    look under dose https://www.drugs.com/trulicity.html
