Should I eat before taking my effexor? Or lamictal? Or empty stomach better?

Effexor should be taken with food and Lamictal with or without food as directed by your doctor.

Take care,

Effexor should be taken with food at about the same time each day. Lamictal maybe taken with or without food.

I never worried with either of those. I took both after I ate. Never seemed to have a probllem. Effexor says take with food. Lamictal doesn't specify.

My mom takes both meds, and her doctor has her take her Effexor with food and she is to take it at the same time every day. her Lamictal she can take with or without food depending on what is more comfortable for her. Hope this helps.. :) free discount card
