It is imperative that you follow this instruction because if a medicine is not taken as advised with respect to food, it may not have an effect or may cause a side effect. This is not only applicable to solid foods but, drinks as well. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Connect with: Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
