good time for taking pill

I'm just curious if it matters what time you take the pill. I start sunday and i plan on taking at 7 in the morning so when school starts it will be easier. Would it matter if i took it on an empty stomach?

Re: good time for taking pill

I take mine at 7 in the morning when I brush my teeth and always on an empty stomach with no problems.

The time of day does not matter. Just be sure that the time you pick is a time that you can take the pill everyday.

My only warning about 7AM and the empty stomach is that some women experience nausea with the pill. Taking the pill at night, or with food can decrease the nausea, should it occur.

Re: good time for taking pill

I take mine at 6 in the morning because that's what time I have to wake up for school, and it's a good time for me because I know I won't be doing anything during that time besides just waking up. So if you take it later on in the day you might have some kind of activity going on and forget to take it. right when you wake up seems best but if you have breakfast it might help with any sickness you might feel later on.

Re: good time for taking pill

I take mine at lunch, I have my watch alarm set to go off everyday to remind me otherwise I never would! I get up at 7 every morning but weekends I sleep in and the last thing I would want is to interupt my sleeping in to take a pill.

Re: good time for taking pill

I take mine at 9pm..and so far it has been fine with me. I remember every night to take it and i like taking it night probably more than i would in the morning...i was going to start taking it at 7 but then i have school coming up..and i didnt want to wake up and take a pill and maybe feel nauseas at school..because sometimes i never eat breakfast. so 9pm works for me =)
