[Ibogaine] Donna and Bupe Q

I'm going through my backlog so sorry this is out-of-date.  I just wanted to
add that I had problems both keeping the tablet under my tongue and the
taste made me sick.  However I found that if I take it lying on my back this
solves both these problems!  Dunno why!  So I take mine when I wake up so
I'm laying in bed.

Just in case it could help anyone!

Hannah :-)
