What time duration should be given between Metformin, Lipitor and Nexium?

I am just starting plaquenil 200mg twice a day. But I also need to take metformin, Lipitor and nexium. I m not sure how to time them all properly. I also need to take a multimineral/multivitamin and iron as well. Concerned about my stomach as well as I have GERD too.

It's good to know about the timings of the drugs. You can take Metformin after your dinner and lunch, Lepiton should be taken at night, nexum is better taken just before your breakfast.

Take Plaquenil after breakfast and dinner. If you want to take multivitamins, you may take it after any of the major meal.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
