Lopid Timing
Jun 5, 2009

I have been on Lopid 2X daily for a couple of years. The doctor said to take it 30mins before eating; however, I often forget to do this and take it with or after food. I take about 14 drugs for various conditions so remembering this direction is not always so easy.

My question is, is the Lopid still going to work if I forget to take it 30 mins in advance of eating?

Your answer will be much appreciated.


Response from Dr. Henry

What is your HIV status and which HIV meds are you taking along with the Lopid? KH
