Medication timing - crossing Intl Date Line

Jump to last reply

Crossing International Dateline going Westward (lv LA 1030 pm, arrive Sydney 630 am) next week and wondering how to "time" my morning and evening medications during the flight so that I am correct once I get to Australia. These are NOT time-sensitive (like some heart meds and others), but I do need to keep on track and not skip/combine.

I'll take the evening ones in LA at dinner before departure.

Should I just divide the flight time into thirds and take morning dose after first 1/3 of time, evening after second third, then morning when I land in Sydney? (and wonder if the same will work for east-to-west trip 3 weeks later...)

Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance!
