Hi. Started my first flot treatment  on thursday then home for 24 hours with pump attached which was disconnected last night. Got up this morning took my tablets with glass of water. Within 30 minutes  the burning in my chest was unbearable then the sickness. Has anyone else had this side effect? Didn't realise it was the cool water until I had next lot of pills. Had shower and cleaned teeth with warm water same pain again. How does anyone take their pills if you cant drink water.  Not sure how they would be taken with tea or coffee. Any help would be fantastic. Thank you
