TAKING PILLS WITH WARM WATER
(Chinese) Doctors Advice:
Pills can be taken singly by using cold water. After swallowing, a person should drink a lot more water. Take your pills 30 minutes before you go to bed, don't go straight to bed immediately after taking pills.
One day a guy took some antibiotics and for not drinking enough water to flush it straight down to the stomach, the pill was
lodged on the food tract and caused an inflammation. For six days he could only take cold milk and water-soluble food and was
hospitalized for five days.
The Doctor warned that should it get any worse, an ulcer in the intestine may result. So please exercise caution. When taking medicine in pill or capsule form: DO NOT use warm or hot water/fruit juice/all kinds of sweet drinks to wash down the medicine. The right way is to down it with cold water.
If you feel discomfort in the throat after taking a pill, drink lots of water
or cold milk. Stand or sit straight when you take
your pill and do not lie immediately.
