    After taking medicine

    "I have been feeling well since I took that medicine", "I have been feeling well after taking the medicine", "I am feeling well after taking the medicine". Are these correct?

    All correct and natural. To me the first is the most natural and most common.

    Re: After taking medicine

    I prefer: I have been feeling better since/after I took that medicine.

    Medicine takes time to take effect, not straight after you have taken it. And the effect is progressive.

    Re: After taking medicine

    I started feeling better soon after taking some of that medicine and now I feel much better, thanks. (Longer version but it reflects the gradual effect of a medicine)

    That medicine really worked! (Short version that reflects the medicine's efficacy but nothing to do with the timescale.)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: After taking medicine

    Some medicine takes effect almost immediately Consider epinephrine (from an EpiPen) for acute allergy.
