When To Take Your Medications

While I attempt to keep drug taking to a minimum, this information may help you determine the best time during the day to take your takemeds meds. This research is based on the way our body’s internal clock operates.

  1. For Allergies – antihistamines – take at bedtime
  2. For Arthritis – long-acting painkillers, such as, Celebrex, Naprelan – take in the morning for osteoarthritis and a second dose at night for rheumatoid arthritis
  3. For Asthma – oral prednisone – 3 pm
  4. For High Blood Pressure – Hypertension drugs, such as, Covera-HS, Innopran XL – bedtime
  5. For High Cholesterol – short-acting statins, such as, Zocor, Lescol – bedtime
