I know this question has been asked but I figured why not again. I finished my inc Feb. 7th. I have been taking my RIBA at random hours but always with food. I take 1000mg a day and was wondering how far apart I can take the meds. I always try to take it before 7 so I stand a chance of sleeping at night. I also know its not a time sensitive medication. Just thought I would ask.
Oh and I have been UND since wk 4,8,12. Just thought I would share that. :0)
The main reason that might not be a good ideal is causing an upset stomach, plus causing one to be jittery. To much Riba at one time could cause stomach issues, I was advised to have at least a 6 hour time frame......
"I heard that its okay to take it 3-4 hours apart is this true?"
Ribavirin - Clinical Pharmacology
The terminal half-life of Ribavirin following administration of a single oral dose of Ribavirin is about 120 to 170 hours. The total apparent clearance following administration of a single oral dose of Ribavirin is about 26 L/h. There is extensive accumulation of Ribavirin after multiple dosing (twice daily) such that the Cmax at steady state was four-fold higher than that of a single dose.
