I usually post on the Ulcerative Colitis board, but now I have a question that needs your expertise.
 
My husband had angioplasty and 3 stints placed yesterday, and has been prescribed Plavix. Does anyone know if it makes a difference whether you take it in the morning or evening? His other meds are: Terazosin, Lotrel, Toprol XL, Zocor, Metformin, and Glipizide ER.
 
Thank you for any information you can give us!

I normally post on the uc board also. I take my plavix in the mornings but I dont think it matters my prescription just says take once a day doesnt specify morning or evening I just try to take it around the same time every day.

Lol, Rona, we UC-ers meet in the strangest places, don't we? Thanks for the info. I have a tendency to assume everything is as complicated as our UC meds, when some things are actually pretty straightforward. :-)

We do seem to have alot of other medical problems which lead us to many of the boards. We take so many meds it get a little confusing.

I just received a stent placement this December and was started on a number of new drugs. Since my prostate cancer I have always used the web site "MedicineNet.Com" to research my Meds. It is written by Pharmacist and Reviewed by Doctors. It is an excellent site, it will give you starting dosages, side effects, when to take it, ect. I have found when you have a question about Meds call a Pharmacist that is their field of expertise.  I had a Doctor who was not sure about a drug interaction and he called a Pharmacist while I was sitting there. Hope this helps.
