Perhaps your doc would have mentioned the time you should take the med, however please Rifampin works best if it is taken at the same time each day.

Best wishes & take care!

Ms. Simran Grewal,,

I would recommend you to talk to a doc who would be able to give you professional advice as the patient is 58 years old.

Please take care.

It does not matter what time of day you take Rifampin... but it is best taken at the same time each day.
Rifampin should also be given on an empty stomach (1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal) with a full glass of water .
Choose a time of day where you are most likely to remember.

P.S. : Kindly recommend some new medication which is effective and safe for a patient with a complicated medical history,as mentioned above.However, it'll be deeply appreciated if you could send in your suggestions at the earliest.
