I was wondering if drinking coffee with or after taking a time release capsule will make it desolve quicker resulting in it not lasting as long. I'm not asking if coffee interacts with my medication. It seems that maybe the acidic hot liquid would make the capsule dissolve quicker than usual. Had anyone else noticed this or have any info on it.
