Yes, if you forget to take your glipizide before your meal it's okay to take after your meal.
Ideally it is best to take glipizide 30 minutes before your biggest meal. However, if you are prescribed glipizide twice a day it's best to take the first pill 30 minutes before breakfast then take the second pill 30 minutes before your largest meal.
It is also important to take this medication at the same time each day. By taking the medication at the same time each day you're more apt to maintain a regular blood glucose level throughout the day.
