    Am I supposed to take IVM on an empty stomach or with food? Thank you.

    Somewhere I found a citation saying after eating which I have listed in my Medisafe app. But I usually just take it anytime and it seems to work. Some people have GIT issues based on the timing but it hasn’t been an issue with me.

    Every medical professional I have dealt with (physicians and compounding pharmacists) say ivermectin should be taken with or directly following a meal. Ideally it should be a fatty meal. It has to do with the best possible absorption of the drug. And if you are taking quercetin as well, you should stagger when you take the two- one at lunch and the other in the evening.
