Taking DMSA. Accidentally missed doses, what to do?

    My Dad takes DMSA. 12.5mg every 4 hours for mercury chelation, 3 days on 4 days off. Today was the start of the 5th round. He took the first dose this morning, then didn't set his reminders, so forgot the rest of his doses.
    How to proceed? Take the rest of his doses for the remainder of the 3 days? Leave it off until starting the next round?
    Any advice would be appreciated, or if you could point me to any info that would help.

    I'm just guessing but if this was the first day just start again tomorrow like it was the first day? It would be different if he missed a few days.

    But I'm guessing. I did DMPS chelation and im sure I forgot a dose here and there.

    I don't think it's such a problem. The reason why you have to take it regularly is because it would just redistribute without actually chalate, making the patient feel much worse. Since he only started his chelation rounds, I guess he can continue.
    I forget to take it from time to time in the middle of the night because I'm too tired and fall asleep immediately when I turn off my alarm. I always feel bad the day afterwards, but I don't think it slowed me down in a significant way.

    I'd just start again tomorrow as if it were fresh round.
