the best time to take a medication

Patients often ask about the best time to take a medication.

Timing is everything. Taking certain meds at the wrong time could cause them to be less effective...or cause unwanted side effects.

Taking some meds WITH food helps minimize side effects. For example, food reduces stomach irritation from ibuprofen...nausea from oxycodone...flushing from niacin...and stomach upset from prednisone.
