Problem Taking Pills

If you have trouble swallowing pills, there is a very easy solution. Place the pill in your mouth, then drink your water (or other liquid) through a straw. There's something about the closed-mouth sucking motion that helps the pill go down. Make sure to continue drinking (with or without the straw) after the pill has gone down. Most medications should be followed with a full (6-8 oz.) glass of water.

I have found a good way to take pills is to take them into my mouth, take a sip of water and put my head down. Pills float to the back of the throat where they can be easily swallowed. I can take several pills at a time this way.

You can also put your pills in applesauce or pudding. It will go down easier and won't get stuck in your throat.
