To the best of my knowledge, the PPIs need to be taken 30-60 minutes prior to eating a meal, preferably breakfast. And the eating needs to happen--if you don't eat 30 - 60 minutes afterwards, the efficacy of the drug will be reduced.
I take mine 30 minutes before breakfast everyday. I don't eat a huge breakfast but I have made this routine for me.
