    Best time to take plaquenil before or after eating


    Doctors tell us to take pills before or after eating and at what intervals but rarely will they specify what time to take them. If pressed they encourage us to link taking drugs to a daily routine such as cleaning our teeth.

    Take it on a regular schedule, meaning at the same time each day. Take Plaquenil EXACTLY as prescribed by your physician. Do not stop taking the medication without first speaking to your doctor. Taking Hydroxychloroquine with food and/or milk can help prevent stomach upset. Oct 06, 2007 I didn't even eat this morning and didn't have a problem. BTW I talked to two pharmacists and both said that it's okay to take with the plaquenil. I wonder if this is a personal opinion about taking it earlier than the plaquenil or maybe something we need to check into more. I actually take all 400 mg in the morning after eating breakfast because after my stomach adjusted, I have tolerated the Plaquenil very well. My rheumy doesn't think there's a problem with taking it all at once as long as I'm tolerating it since there is such a long half-life, it shouldn't affect the drug itself.

    Yet the severity of our symptoms and how our bodies absorb drugs fluctuate over 24 hours.“Indeed many drugs labelled ‘take one a day’ often work better at night,” says Michael Smolenksy, one of the world’s foremost authorities on chronotherapeutics. This is understandable since they want us to remember to take our treatments consistently.
