Not knowing what: the other medications are that she is taking prevents me from helping you coordinate her regimen. The Telma should be taken twice daily about 12 hours apart and the Cilacar could be taken at anytime during the day or in combination with her Telma. I think you should ask her health care provider to review her treatment and make her regimen simpler if possible.
