Should I always take medication with meals?
This is not always advisable. Medicines can work faster or slower, better or worse, depending on whether you take them on a full stomach or not. The information label or sheet that comes with your medication will tell you whether it is best taken with food or without, or how long after your meal. If there are no directions, you can ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
