Question

I was given marinol twice daily but what is best time to take? just before breakfast and dinner or 15 to 30 minutes before breakfast and dinner?

Thank you

Answer

There is no absolute best answer since absorption rate and effect can vary from person to person. The goal is often to either stimulate appetite or decrease nausea so experimenting with timing in the range of 30 minutes to right before meal is often useful to find the best timing for a given patient.
