Advice & Tips: I am feeling pretty good about Nudexta. Today is the second day is a row that the paper towel I use when I drink my morning coffee was relatively 'dry'. Usually it is sopping wet with coffee by the time I finish the cup, mostly because I gag a few times and lose a whole mouthful of coffee. Today I drank it without gaging once. It seemed as thought it took me about half the time to drink it also but I have not been timing myself.
