Most meds it makes no difference what time you take them. They don't interact in your stomach but in your blood. Its best to talk to your pharmacist about specific medications.

Please do not give people answers to questions you don't know the answer to. It does matter what time you take the medications. Almost ALL drug, drug interactions are interactions that do happen. Happen within the gut/liver, and not in the blood. Its based on which emzymes break the medication down during first pass metabolism. If someone takes a subtrate or inhibitor more of the drug will go into the blood stream in toxic levels. Other drugs that act as inducers will metabolize the drugs to quickly and not enough drug will enter the blood stream. In many cases these interactions during first pass metabolism can be fatal.
