No, but i have found that if it gets hot, then the enjoyment of the drink decreases dramatically. It does get a bit frothy if shaken alot too.

I tried it with similar results. I tried to acclimate to the taste, and hoped that my body would tolerate this drink better, but it never happened. It may work for some, but it didn't for me.

accelerade is better if mixed the night before and left in the frig overnight. experiment with the dissolution ratio. full dose + warm weather = vomit taste and bloating, you are right on. but it works for me when i use it.
