This is for post op swelling. All it says it take twice daily. There is no pharmacist when I called...I am on insulin and am not sure that I would take it every twelve I will be taking insulin every two hrs all night long...a little nervous about falling asleep in case it goes too high. Does anyone know if am and supper is okay? Or am I better off every 12 hrs. I have no clue and cannot find it anywhere on line. Just to take it early in the dat if you take it once.

In general, just twice a day is okay, no reason to be overly concerned with the timing
