Two Questions About PPI's

I get heartburn only at night, and I eat nothing for 3-4 hours before sleep. The medicines say to take them in the morning before eating. Can I take a PPI before going to bed, and not eat anything before or after taking it ?
I prefer not to take it during the day, so that it won't interfere with the absorption of the nutrients.
The second question is what to do about the severe dry mouth that results from the side effect of the medicine. Thanks.
