    Hi,
    I was just double-checking the meaning of
    empty stomach and thought I would post it.
    I can't believe I actually remembered this correctly
    on my own.
    Found this online and thought it would be of help
    to many of us.


    The definition for "empty stomach" is *1 hour before meals or 2 hours
    after meals*. To maximize absorption of antibiotics, administer around
    the clock (ie, every 6 hours rather than "4 times a day") to decrease
    variation in your peak and trough drug levels.
