zinc on an empty stomach   by white tiger   15 year

A zinc supplement of 10 to 15 mg taken twice daily with food can make a significant difference.
High doses of a zinc supplement may cause irritation of the stomach, and is best taken with food in order to avoid nausea.

People who have hemochromatosis, are allergic to zinc, or are infected with HIV should not take supplemental zinc. Ulcers in the stomach or duodenum may be aggravated by supplements as well. Those with glaucoma should use caution if using eye drops containing zinc. Overuse of supplemental zinc during pregnancy can increase the risk of premature birth and stillbirth, particularly if the supplement is taken in the third trimester. This increase in adverse outcomes has been documented with zinc dosages of 100 mg taken three times daily.
