Q: Glucophage XR should be taken before or after meals?

Prescription says I should take glucophage "with meals".

To me this is not clear, it can be before I start eating (how long before),

while I am eating, or after I have finished eating, and then how long after.

Please provide right answer

This article on glucophage suggests to take your medicine during, or directly after eating to minimize upset stomach. It sounds like the most important thing is that you take it at the same time each day.
