It depends somewhat on the reason you were prescribed this treatment, but probably there's a lot of flexibility. Probably it doesn't matter much, as long as you're taking steadily fewer pills each day roughly along the recommended schedule. You can take it with or without food -- but for sure with food if you get an upset stomach without eating. If still uncertain, check with your doctor.
