look, i have to agree that this medicine tastes terrible (as most uncoated tablets do!) but it's not rocket science. have a large meal and thick beverage- take the pill mid-meal. this will help with any nausea and after taste. as far as drinking, you're not supposed to- but if you know you're going to drink, skip the dose or you will throw it up anyway. i knew i was going out for d ...

Lady's, if you are having problems with side effects try to take the med. with OJ or milk or any juice just not water by it self. I took the drug with water and I hated the after feeling, but with juice it was like taking an aspirin. Try to drink the whole cup too. hope this helps.

This is the 2nd time i have taken the medication, different dosage then the 1st time, but still the same results. I haven't experienced a bad taste or problems like alot of people have mentioned. I made sure to wait a few days after having an alcoholic drink before started the dosage and waiting the same time afterwards. Overall easy, pain free medication.

I really hope this druck works, cause I've been sick the whole time: hot flashes, lose of appetite (which is good)and nausea. This is the worst! I did have to drinks...less then 6oz each. Again, I really hope it works cause the nausea alone isn't worth going through this again

Comment:
AVOID BAD TASTE!! Take it with tomato juice. While having the tomato juice in your mouth, carefully put the pill in the juice and swallow fast following with another drink of juice. The juice is thick which prevents the pill from touching any part of the inside of your mouth therefore leaving no taste behind.
