Will there be any problem if I administer erceflora directly without mixing with fluid?

Product leaflet of ERCEFLORA says it should be mixed with milk, juice, or water for much easier administration. Will there be any problem if I administer it directly by mouth? My son has no issues with how a drug tastes, anyway. I was just wondering why the leaflet does not say whether it can be given directly or not. thanks

yes there will be problems if you gave the medicine directly it will reduce the effect of the drug as it needs to be dissolved in something to avoid being destroyed by the acid of the stomach to reach the intestines to do its effect

hope to have answered your query.
