The nurse practitioner answered my question today. Wait two hours, then drink the milk!
I am new to this drug, since April, and my doc and the prescription directions say to wait 30 to 60 mins b/4 taking food or drink. The doc and directions on label also say to wait 3 to 4 HOURS to take calcium supplements--I wait 3 hrs b/4 taking calcium or vitamins (since there is some calcium in my supplements as well). I wait ONLY 30 mins for coffee (with dairy) b/c I cannot wait longer! I think the best thing to do is call your doc about the large glass of milk one hr after taking the meds.
