Hi, I have just experienced a flare up of heartburn and acid reflux after taking a supplement in the form of a tablet with loads of water during a meal. The directions stated to take 1 tablet a day during a meal. Up until last night, I wasn't experiencing any problems other than some IBS which was getting better.. Then last night, I developed reflux and heartburn symptoms. After googling my experience, it came up that taking tablets during a meal drinking water will play havoc with the digestion and infact cause acid build up . So my dilemma is: how do I take a tablet ( any tablet) with a meal when the instructions tell you to take with a meal, when it causes reflux? Part of taking any medication with a meal is sometimes so it can be easily absorbed together with food. ( applogies for this being so long winded)
