In an attempt to deal with my ridiculously high cholesterol, I take Vytorin as prescribed by my doctor and fish oil tablets as well. This morning I popped a couple of fish oil tablets in my mouth -- and these suckers are not tiny by the way, they're about the size of a fancy guppy -- and took a big sip of the liquid I had at hand. Unfortuntely the L I had at H was hot tea -- very hot; too hot to swallow a couple of fancy guppies without blistering my esophagus. What it did though was immediately melt the fish oil tablets so I had to run silently screaming down the hall to the water fountain with boiling fish grease in my mouth. Not a pleasant experience and I'm just praying I don't burp today.
Note to self: cold or room temperature liquids for pill-popping.
