6 wk old prescribed Zantac (ranitidine) 3x/day. Supposed to have 2nd dose at 3:00 pm, but gave at 11am instead. She had last at 7:00am. Is she ok?

In brief: Okay

We try to space out dosing because the drug wears off after a while and we want to cover most of the day.
Bumping up a dose is unlikely to hurt but it also may not produce additional benefit.
