Levothyroxine, which is used to treat Thyroid disorders is most effective when taken in the morning, on an empty stomach, at least half an hour to an hour, before eating.

It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, weight changes and hair loss.

Lorazepam is a Benzodiazepine, used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders.

Since it can also be used to treat severe cases of insomnia, because drowsiness is a side effect, many people prefer to take it in the evening, before bed. If you are taking it more than once a day, then follow your doctor or pharmacist's instructions.


Celebrex contains Celecoxib, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory used to treat pain and swelling.

For this one, you should also follow your doctor's instructions on how often to take it, as there isn't necessarily a best time of day. These are often given with the instructions to use as needed, up to a certain number of times a day. They do work better if taken regularly, when it comes to treating Arthritis.

These medications can cause some stomach irritation, so you may want to make sure to take them with a meal or light snack.


The same goes for the Vicodin, it contains Acetaminophen, coupled with the narcotic Hydrocodone and there is really no best time of day for it. Just follow the prescribing instructions, if it says you should take it 3 times day, then that would be every 8 hours.

It can also cause stomach irritation and nausea, so it might also be best to not take it on an empty stomach.


Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor that is used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach.

This can help prevent some of the irritation and damage from your other medications. It is usually taken once a day and should be taken at least a half an hour, before eating.


Dyazide contains Triamterene and Hydrochlorthiazide, it is commonly used to treat high blood pressure and other cardiac conditions.

If you are taking it once daily, it is usually best to do so in the morning, that way it helps control these health problems for the duration of the day, when you are being most active and your heart is under the most stress.



Aricept contains the active ingredient Donepezil.

This one is normally taken at bedtime, because it can also cause drowsiness, fatigue and sedation.


Prempro is an HRT medication and, there is also really no best time of day for it.

However, you may find it more convenient to take it in the morning or evening, with your other medications, because this will get you in the habit of doing so, that way you don't forget.


Is there anything else I can help you with?
