Comment:
I have no trouble taking this powder. If mixed/stirred with a small amount of liquid at first to dissolve, then adding the rest of the liquid and drinking very quickly, it is very palatable. I find no taste or aftertaste at all...I even take it with water.

I do not enjoy taking this medication, when mixed with water as prescribed I find it very gritty. I would hope in the near future the company can make it more palatable

Comment:
This drug is so vile tasting that I have trouble swallowing it. The aftertaste burns my throat and mouth no matter how much water or liquid I drink. I wish someone would make this into a capsule or tablet form. I am only on my second round of it. I hope my doctor will take me off of it when I see him.

Very expensive! Paid 75.00 co-pay for one dose prescribed. Only comes in a 1 pound container. Too much $ for a one time use. Plus the experation date is Jan 08. Like throwing money down the toilet!!
