Because of the harm it can do to your esophagus if it isn't further into your digestive tract. Laying down allows a certain amount of reflux and that isn't the best thing to happen. Propping up in bed would help and drink a full glass of water after you take it.
The contents of your stomach may come up your esophagus a little bit and cause real discomfort like heartburn.
