I take it about
2 hours after my thyroid meds which is about
8am on an empty stomache along with minocycline which is also to be taken on an empty stomache. I wait an hour then have breakfast. I take these again 2 hours after dinner. I am also taking meprion/malerone with some kind of fat as you are supposed to usually with a meal. I am aware that the literature says NOT to take mepron/malerone with rifampin but LLMD says it is better to take it than not as I still have symptoms of babs..So far my stomache is the only thing that dioesn't bother me.Hope this helps.
