One of the only complaints we receive with any regularity is that people have trouble swallowing pills. Whether they’re big or small, coated or uncoated, there are some people who wince at the very idea of swallowing a pill.
More often than not, capsules can be opened and sprinkled into a beverage or onto your food. But for caplets, tablets and softgels, you might try one of the following tactics:
- Try drinking liquids of more substance like milk, a milkshake or liquid yogurt when trying to swallow a pill. The thicker liquids could help “mask” a pill easer than thin liquids like water.
- Try placing the pill on the back of your tongue, take a sip of water, tilt your chin closer to your chest and then swallow.
- Try placing the pill on the tip of your tongue, take a sip of water, tilt your head back and then swallow.
In the mean time, as powders, fast-melts and other, more convenient, delivery methods are introduced, we will continue to investigate the opportunity to offer our products in non-pill formulas.
