Why Do You Have Flomax 30 Minutes After Meal, and Not 1 or 2 Hours After?

Food will slow down the rate at which Flomax is absorbed.
If you have your meal and swallow the tablet half an hour after you should feel full for a while and therefore increase the rate at which the Flomax is absorbed.
If you wait for 1 to 2 hours after eating to take the tablet it is more likely that you will be hungry soon after, eat, and then slow down the rate at which the Flomax is absorbed.
That doesn't make sense to me though because your meal wouldn't have digested within half an hour so it would be almost the same as taking the Flomax with a meal. Am I wrong?
