videx 2 hours after meal

Jun 11, 2001

New Videx should be taken 2 hours afer and before a meal. But do you not think it would be better to take it first thing in the morning, for sometimes I feel 2 hours after meal I still have food around.., and how does a single cup of coffee maybe an hour later or previous affect treatment? Thank you

Response from Dr. Boyle

I understand your concern, but if you are taking Videx EC 2 hours before or after a meal you should not have a problem. If you feel more comfortable taking it in the morning, that is OK too and you should not eat for at least 1 hour after taking the Videx EC. Coffee, without cream or sugar, should not be a problem either.
