    Hi All
    Made my mind up to contact the Docs on monday - Anyway....
    Anyone know how long it takes to exit your body. So if you were going away for a few days and would be eating normal food, how long would you lay off the tabs before hand?
    Thanks

    not to sure on that but becuase you take a tablet every time you eat as long as its not within that hour im guessing you would be fine
    not clear on that though

    I'm sure i read something about that, i think this person said to lay off maybe a day before and wait untill a day after you had the fatty foods!! Not 100% on this!!

    Hi, I asked this question at docs.. and she said the tablets do not go into your blood stream therefore they do not stay in your system, whic is why you have to take them within the hour of eating food, she told me that if you know you are going to have a meal out and think you might have problems then just dont take the tablet before that meal or after. I have followed this advice and never had any problems, hope this helps..
