I know many of you are post-transplant as I am. They tell you to take the immunosuppressants either with or without food, but to be consistent. I suddenly realized a couple of months ago that if I took them without food I could probably take fewer pills so I tried that, and I was right — I went from four pills in the morning to 2.5. These medications are never great for you, long-term, so I like the idea of taking a smaller dosage.
The problem is timing it so that I am not taking it with food. At this point I try to take them about an hour before I get up, giving me about an hour and 15 minutes between taking the pills and eating. I was wondering, how are other people managing that? It can be a real nuisance to take them an hour before I want to get up because often then, I cannot get back to sleep and end up tired.
