Pills with Lactose After Meat

Question:

Hi,

I have a medication which contains lactose as an inactive ingredient. Does that mean that I must wait 6 hours after eating meat or chicken before taking my medication ? (I must take it half hour before meals)
Thank you!

Answer:

 

No, in pill form as a medication there is no need to wait after meat, before consuming.
