A pill without water can burn a hole in your throat.

Always take your medication with a large glass of water because a pill without water can burn a hole in your throat.

It can be tempting to swallow a pill ‘dry’. We are busy and very often do not have time to get a glass of water as it means getting up from our desks.

But swallowing pills "dry" can cause heartburn or even burn a hole in your throat. One English doctor, Dr. Peberton, took only one antibiotic tablet and within a week ended up in a hospital and then had to take another six weeks of work.

The tablet he swallowed “dry” got stuck in his oesophagus. Since this part of the esophagus is nerve-free, at first he felt no pain at all. But the tablet was there all the time, slowly dissolving, destroying delicate tissue and burning a hole in the nearby muscle.

Be careful when you take vitamin C, iron supplements, aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen, as well as numerous antibiotics. They can even burn right through, causing ulcers and scarring. Always take tablets one at a time with a full glass of water.
