How Long after Taking Medication on Empty Stomach Should You Wait before Eating?

Answer

You should wait 15 minutes to an hour after taking medication on an empty stomach before eating. The reason for this is that the medication is not designed to be digested in the stomach so it needs to pass through to the next part of the digestive system. This also means that you should only take the medication with water so that the digestive process is not started prematurely.
