It is best to take Atelvia in the morning (please see below) and you could take Prevacid in the evening.
Atelvia should be taken in the morning immediately following breakfast.
When compared with immediate-release risedronate, treatment with Atelvia resulted in a significantly higher incidence of abdominal pain when administered before breakfast under fasting conditions. Atelvia should be taken immediately following breakfast and not under fasting conditions.
To facilitate delivery to the stomach, Atelvia should be swallowed whole while the patient is in an upright position and with at least 4 ounces of plain water. Tablets should not be chewed, cut, or crushed. Patients should not lie down for 30 minutes after taking the medication [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2)].
Patients should receive supplemental calcium and vitamin D [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3))]. Calcium supplements, antacids, magnesium-based supplements or laxatives, and iron preparations interfere with the absorption of Atelvia and it is recommended they be taken at a different time of the day. Atelvia is not recommended for use in patients with severe renal impairment (creatinine clearance <30 mL/min) because of lack of clinical experience. No dosage adjustment is necessary in patients with a creatinine clearance ≥30 mL/min or in the elderly.
