What time of day do you take rifampin? I'm taking tetracycline with it. Are they taken together? My LLMD said whenever. Thanks.

Hi Opus,

When I was taking mino and rifampin, I took them a half hour to and hour before meals. Breakfast and dinner.

When I was taking rifampin and zith, I did the same.

Doxy need to be taken with a meal.

I'm pretty sure rifampin should be taken on an empty stomach. At least that is what the pharms told me.

Oh ok. Tetracycline needs a meal so I guess I'll take rifampin before bed then. Thanks.
