Thanks for posting your query.
As such there is no time limit for nutrilite and salmon omega -3 fatty acid capsules.
Medicines should be taken empty stomach until unless your treating doctor has advised to take with meal.
Medicines should be taken 30 minutes before meals or 1 hour after meal.
medicines are absorbed maximally when it is taken empty stomach.
You can take these medicines at slleping time.
Regarding diabetic medicines, you should take it 30 minutes before lunch.
What is your blood sugar status?
If it is uncontroled then you should consult with physician and should take proper treatment.
Uncontrolled sugar may cause intestinal complication with delayed gastric emptying.
And this may interfere with medicines integrity.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
