Hello, yes some experts say to avoid drinking water during meals, it's either due to dilution of digestive enzymes, dilution of stomach acid or due to it decrease appetite if we take during food. But taking only one or two sips of water will not affect. There are medicines which should be taken before food,, some with food, and most of the medicines after food preferable 15mins to 20min after food you can take medicine and drink water
