You can do that. How much do you want to change it by, and where are you in your pill pack right now?

Well from 4pm to 11pm.
And im only two pills away from finishing the packet.
Could it have bad commonsense?

Why don't you wait to switch your pill time with the start of the new pack? As long as you are not planning on changing the pill time by more than 12 hours, which you aren't, it's not a problem at all.
