Hi

I wonder whether not to mention/let alone/never mind/much less/even less/still less is followed by the bare infinitive (infinitive without 'to') or the normal infinitive.

'Anyway, I’m not allowed to lie down on my bed, not to mention get my medicine earlier.'

Is that correct? Or do I have to say 'not to mention TO get my medicine earlier?

    I can't find any fault with the version including "to": ... not to mention, to get my medicine earlier.

    With a comma it seems even more okay.
