a lot of medications say "take with a full glass of water" im not one that can drink a full glass of anything fast and sometimes will sip for hours on a glass of something.. so if i drank a full glass with my medication i would feel like i was drowning! so i dont i just drink a few sips.. im sure they want you to take it with some amount of liquid to help it absorb or travel to your stomach better but do you think the FULL glass of water is THAT important?
