Should You Take Your Oral Medication Riget Before Your Meal Or 30 Minutes Before?

Should You Take Your Oral Medication Riget Before Your Meal Or 30 Minutes Before?

Might depend on the medication and situation. I take Glipizide once in the morning with all the other meds and then I am supposed to take one 30 minutes before I eat dinner. I have found that the timing really does impact the meal. If I forget and take it while I am eating, or just before it doesn't seem to help as much as I would like. I've learned to keep some in the car to take on the way home if I am coming home to a dinner. My drive home is about 25 minutes. ;)
