When is the right time? 30 min prior? After meal? Before bedtime? Or right before you eat? I hear different things. I forgot to take my meds after dinner last night and ended up taking it 2 hours after my meal. My BS 2 hours after without meds was 159. When I checked this morning it was 126! Is it bec I took it before bedtime? I'm usually running 135-141 in the morning…

I take the maximum, 2500mgs daily. One at each meal and two at 9pm snack time. My endo told me to take it before I eat so that it starts working as my blood sugar starts rising. Works for me!
