B.I.D. means Bis in Die, latin for twice in a day, so you should take it every 12 hours. There would no specific time to start the med, you should pick a time convenient for you that will help you remember to take it, for instance, if you arise for to get ready for work at 7am, you could take it then, then take the next dose at 7pm when you know you will still be awake to take it.

Actually with diabetes medications such is this it might be advisable to take the first dose with breakfast and the last dose with supper. Like zippysgoddess said though...12 hours apart. One can get terrible stomach pain if not taken with food. I know, I am a diabetic but have moved onto insulin. The best thing for me.

Diabetics, especially on medications for control, should have small frequent snacks to balance their blood sugar throughout the day anyway. I cannot believe your doc or pharmacist did not tell you how or when to take it. That makes no sense.

Maybe the doctor thought that you would know if you have to take a med twice a day you would space it 12 hours apart. Like if you would have to take a med 4 times a day would be every 6 hours.
