The directions say don't have food in your stomach when I take this pill. What happens if I eat immediately after taking the pill and vice versa?
If you eat immediately after swallowing your pill the pill has to compete with the food for absorption and thus may not work as effectively. Picture your Clonidine blood pressure pill lost in a huge crowd of mash potatoes instead of being able to go right to the front of the check out line, like it will on an empty stomache. Hope that helps :)
