Post help swallowing pills...
on: February 2, 2014, 12:54 PM

i know this is kinda random...(which is why i put it under miscellaneous)...
any tips on how i can learn to swallow a pill??? i have this mental thing blocking me from taking one... i've tried tiny candies..ive tried tiny cups attached to little trays i've tried putting it in applesauce/ ice cream...but i always stop the pill from going down. any of you ever had this fear of choking and gotten over it? how???

I had the same thing!
I look really funny doing this, but it totally works.
Try sipping water or whatever drink first, and before you swallow push the pill into your mouth. This way, the pill goes down as your swallowing.
Good luck!

I learned how to swallow by trying little pieces of cake! Btw, your throat is large enough to accomodate pills and stuff so why would you choke? in fact, that's it's safe to let little kids starting solids to eat cheerios and pills are narrower than that, so for sure it's safe.

good ideas sem613- let's start one. could be the start of something big! i doubt i'm the only one out there with this fear that i just can't get over!
purpleprincess- so i am gonna try working my way up, perhaps with cake/candy... but when u swallow something whole, it doesn't feel like ur throat is big enough! to me at least 🙂

I know exactly what you mean chaykie, also humans have this incredible thing called a gag reflex which is actually a good thing because it does keep us from choking on things that are too big. but for some of us, its overactive and gets scared fast so you gag on even small things.

i know exactly what you mean, i gag at throat cultures, that molding stuff for braces, all of that

actually now that i think about it, one thing i found to help for swallowing pills because of that is to use less water than what everyone else says

Well I take vitamins every night, (it's healthy! 🙂 ) and you just don't have a gag reflex after awhile... 🙂
