Brief Answer:
You are safe.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
As you are taking your pills regularly without any gap and you took missed pill within an hour, so you are completely safe.
But it is better to take pill regularly on time.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.
