Glucohhage 500mg
Morning doc

Just want to know when is the best time to drink your Glucophage medication? One of my friends is also on Glucophage 500mg x1 a day. And her doctot advise her to drink the medication with her main meal.

Does it has a better effect if you drink it with your main meal?

Hi Annie

It is indeed advised to take a single Glucophage dose with (or immediately after) your main meal. The effect wont really be better, but side effects may be less.
