The recommendation for one of the four drugs, Rifampicin, is, that it be administered on an empty stomach either one hour before or two hours or more after meals, to increase total absorption, as food may delay and/or reduce the amount of rifampin absorbed.

Please do check with your doctor on this.

Good luck
