Take tablet after breakfast and dinner not on an empty stomach.

Drink lots of water headaches are not nice.

I need to make sure there is a toilet available after my morning tablet. 

I have lost a stone in 8 months (much needed)

 My psoriasis completely cleared within months of starting this medication and this was sustained for just over a year. However it now appears to be creeping back... so disappointed
