My daughter, who is 6, is taking Galzin for Wilson's Disease. She is supposed to take it 3 times a day on an empty stomach. Any suggestions on dosage times? It's soooo hard!

Three times a day on an empty stomach is hard for anyone - and especially for a six year old girl.
An empty stomach is usually considered 30min-one hour hour before a meal or two-three hours after a meal.
The main thing is to do the best you can and once you have established a routine, stick to it.
You could try
First thing in the morning - with breakfast as close as possible to an hour later.
Sometime in the middle - you will have to think this one out around school breaks.
Last thing at night - try and aim for early dinner times if at all possible (that can be equally hard :-)
