I have thought about trying out Kuvan but the whole insurance issue is holding me up and the fact that i would have to supposedly take 18 pills a day.  For those of you who do take it, I am mainly interested to know if you all still need to take that many pills and if so how do you do it?  I would think it would take forever to take that many and i would get sick from drinking so much water.
