Fine: A one time missed dose for 8 hours is fine, but compliance and regularity is important to develop a steady state of therapeutic drug level, so be sure to develop a routine that allows you to remember to take your daily medication. Best wishes.

Important: Remember, it is of the greatest importance that you try to take your immunosuppressant medications in a timely fashion. It's administered that way so that your blood levels are appropriate to protect the transplant and minimize adverse effects of too high a drug level. Please review this with your transplant nephrologist to have a plan for issues like this in the future. Best of luck.

Not really: It is extremely important that you take your anti-rejection medications every day on time. If you are off by 15 -30 minutes, I don't think it will have any significant impact on the allograft. Just remember that your immune system has a very good long-term memory and if you don't have adequate level of anti-rejection medicines in your system, your body will try to reject the kidney.
