I have been taking collagen tablets in order to reduce knee pain. they seem to have worked although I can't say with certainty that it isn't all in the mind.
Until recently, the tablets were pure collagen with just gelatine and an anti-caking agent and they were to be taken at bedtime with water.
i recently bought a different brand (Jointace) because i couldn't buy the usual ones. The new ones contain not only collagen but a host of other ingredients such as glucosamine, chondroitin and various minerals and vitamins. the instructions tell me to take them with the main meal and a cold drink.
I would much rather take them at bedtime.
Will they not be as effective at taken at night? I would appreciate any comments, even if they tell me that i am fooling myself and wasting money taking collagen anyway!

Thank you both for the replies. I wonder why an answer was removed? I think your answer, Sqad, looked like something from the Delphic Oracle. Is it the timing or the tablets that "won't make a jot of difference"?
How about taking them at bedtime with a warm drink and a biscuit? As said previously Glucosamine can cause a stomach upset if taken without food.
