Need help with scheduling

Hi Everyone, I take protonix 2x a day and carafate 3x a day. Dr. Wants me to take carafate an hour before a meal. He also wants me to take protonix before a meal. But this has to be a separation of 2 hours between them . I also take BP medicines. Before I was put on the carafate I would take the protonix first then 30 min later I would eat breakfast then I would take my BP medicines. So I thought of taking protonix before breakfast then take my meds. Then take carafate before lunch and dinner and bedtime . I canít figure out how to get the second dose of protonix. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Really, you need to ask your doctor. Doctors have loads of info on their minds. He might want to drop one of the meds.

Re: Need help with scheduling

Hi Yaya, I did ask my doctor, he was the one that told me on how to take it but he said to try to see if I could fit the protonix 2x a day. Heís not very helpful and I am currently in the process of getting a new PCP . I just thought that maybe someone on This forum might of Been prescribed the same medications and dosages at some time or another and could give me some advice. Thank you , hope you are well.

I also had difficulty fitting in all the meds given the standard instructions. I shoved a schedule in front of my gastro and insisted (nicely) that she show me how to carry out her instructions. We ended up waiting 40 minutes in between. This still made it difficult to fit in "multiple" mini meals.
