If you want to get a pill in this part of the stomach, your posture is essential to achieve it by acting on both gravity and the stomach’s natural asymmetry.
The team examined four postures. Taking pills while lying on your right side was by far the best. The pills entered the deepest part of the stomach and dissolved 2.3 times faster than in an upright position. That position came second and was essentially as effective as lying on your back. Lying on your left side gave the worst result.
