I used to have this same problem, but now, I've learned to swallow them dry o__o;
What I used to do was pop the pill in my mouth, then take a gulp of water. then, start thinking about something else, and try as HARD as you can to forget about the pill. then swallow. or, if that doesnt work, try to convince yourself that you're simply drinking water. I know it sounds a little silly, but thats what I did, and it seemed to work for me. Hope that helps, somewhat >.<

Yeah. You can find them at Walgreens, Walmart, anywhere. I believe they are in the infants or children's med area.


Being single doesn't make you weak, it means that you are strong enough to be on your own; Being alone could be a good thing, because there is no drama involved in your life, no pain, and free to do what ever you want. Life is too short to be chasing those who aren't even worth fighting for, you are worth more than that.

I've always heard that there can be some ingredient in pills that are bad if you mash them up or let them dissolve in your mouth (whether accidentally or on purpose) but it depends. I've actually never had a problem with pills. Or needles, but that's another story. I take allergy meds every morning and it's a LITTLE pill that I take dry. And when I have a cold I won't take liquid medicine, I take the HUGE Dayquil pills. I LOVE those, i dunno why but I always find it fun swallowing those pills. Feels very awesome. haha!

Anyways, think of this: You aren't going to choke on the pills. They wouldn't be allowed to produce any pills of you could choke on them. That would be a MAJOR health risk and they would get tons of lawsuits. Also, just think about something different and once you take it for a month or so it becomes second nature.

there is nothing hard about swallowing the pills,if u are ten i am too,soo here is how:

you just put it on your tongue and drink water,lots will be good,and don't be afraid to try swallowing them,my sister did and now she swallows them<not as good as me thought>don't be afraid you just wont be able to swallow it you will keep thinking something will go wrong,again.DON'T BE AFRAID.

GOOD LUCK
