Had to go to traffic court in the later part of the day. Tried to reschedule procedure ahead of time with my doctor. Doctor said it would be fine to start taking the medication later than he originally prescribed. Took the pill at 4pm. Mix the solution at 5pm. Slight BM around 5:30pm. Started taking the mixture with the pineapple flavor pack at 10pm. Realized it would probably be easier to bear i ... Show Full Comment

Took the tablet at 9am. Mixed up Halflytely with lemon lime flavor & put in fridge to chill. About 30 min. before drinking I took it out to warm up a bit. Discovered if I took deep breath and long drink it went down pretty easy. I was able to get it all down without to much difficulty. Not the most pleasant experience but it could be worse. I did keep a book in the bathroom to help pass all t ... Show Full Comment
