I take several different medicines each day. How should I space the time when taking them? Is all at once okay? Or should I take them at different times each day?

I am sorry, but without knowing what medications they are, to check for any contraindications, we cannot possibly guess.

Has your doctor or pharmacist given you any specific advice on this?

Some medications can be taken together, but there are some that do have to be spaced apart.

If you post back with a list of what they are, I'll be glad to see what I can find out for you!

I am not finding any contraindications listed, but this site is not medical professionals, so you should ask your doctor or pharmacist to be certain.

There is, however, a note that you should avoid grapefruit or its juice within hours of taking the Simvastatin.

If you would like to read more on these medications:

Personally, if it were me, just because that is a lot of pills to take at once, I'd space the out a little, just to make it easier.

Did your doctor or pharmacist give you a recommended dosing schedule?
