I have ordered some that comes in cap, swallowing kind. I don't like wafers or the kind you have to chew up so I wanted to try that. I hear letting it disolve in your mouth is better for you than just swallowing the capsule.

How much should I take? When and how many times a day? And how? Should I let it disolve in my mouth. I think I could handle that better if it is like a gel form rather than the chalky form which makes me gag!

Any advice on that I would appreciate.

I am not certain, but I don't believe the gel capsules will do anything, even if you let them dissolve.  I know what you are saying about the bad taste. When I first tried them, I SWORE I would be not be able to handle the taste.  But I forced myself to take them and now it is no problem.  I would play checkers on the internet to distract myself from the bad taste. I would just do my best to not think about it.  It is important to allow them dissolve and not chew them.
 
Taking 3-5 tablets 4x a day should be enough.

Thanks KLA

OK i found a better price...how long does it take for the DGL Licorice to start working thanks? Also are there fruit juice ones available?

The PPI's for example can take anywhere from 3-14 days to start relieving Gerd symptoms.

Ok, i decided what I was going to do was take the caplets and open them and put the powdered DGL licorice on a spoon and put it in my mouth and swallow. My gosh, it taste horrible!!!!!!! But it was so soothing going down.

Basically the powdered DGL licorice is the same as the chewable if you crushed it and swallowed it that way. It was yucky, but I'm going to keep taking it and see what happens.
