Advice & Tips: Don't forget to eat with the medicine to avoid stomach upset. Literature states to eat with the medicine as well but not sure if this is for efficacy of the medicine or to prevent stomach problems. Either way, eating helps avoid the stomach problem and I can usually get away with eating a small healthy snack. Always get your blood work done when your doctor requests it.
