    I'm thinking of taking my phen later in the day and want to know how long after I eat - should I take phen. I want to get the same effects as if I'd taken them first thing in the morning...

    Thanks!

    You could do a google search for how long certain foods take to digest.

    I did a quick search for you and found this:

    After putting the yummy stuff into your mouth, it (the bolus) then has to travel through the entire gastrointestinal tract before coming out the other end. The gastrointestinal tract for the purposes of this exercise includes the oral cavity, the oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, and colon.

    Food travels down the oesophagus at a rate of approximately 3 to 4 centimetres per second (1 to 2 inches), and the entire process takes about 5 to 6 seconds. In the stomach, food tends to hang around for a little longer and this depends on a variety of factors including the amount of food you have consumed, how much fat it contains, and also the acidity of the stomach. However, all food should have left the stomach within 2 to 4 hours.

    In the small intestine, digestion continues and absorption occurs. From here on, the time to defecation will vary depending on the time it takes to adequately digest and absorb in the small intestine. This will usually take 5 to 6 hours. The "food then enters the colon for further digestion and water reabsorption before defecation. The time from itís entering the colon to defecation is about 12 to 24 hours.

    Thanks you all for your responses... I had to google this question a number of ways before I got a good answer... I've also posted it below in case anyone else needed it...

    Thank you all again - you're all the greatest!


    Some medications should be taken on an empty stomach. This is usually because food prevents the medication from being fully absorbed into the body.

    If your medication needs to be taken on an empty stomach, take it one hour before meals or two hours after food with a full glass of liquid, usually water.

    I eat a light breakfast at around 10 or so. then take my phen around 12 or 1pm and drink a lot of water. I have lunch around 2 or 3 so the later I take phen the better it works for me. I am an evening snacker!
