I don't have problems but have heard of people who do. You can get just about any drug in a liquid form if that is a real problem for you. It may not be available commercially but most towns will have a compounding pharmacy that can make it for you.

I've taken up to 6 at a time. There are some I can even swallow without liquid.

Just put it in a cheese ball and imagine you're a dog. That should work.

its rare but it can take two attempts to swallow my vitamin. It's pretty good sized and the taste is sooo bad. Drink necessary

Nope I take pills like a champ. If you want to take them dry, try fake chewing with your teeth a couple times before swallowing (don't actually chew the pill ofc). Muscle memory of chewing/swallowing will take care of the rest.

Do you have trouble swallowing pills? I do. no matter how hard I try I've never been able to take a pill NO matter how tiny it is and swallow it whole.

Do any of you CR users have similar problems?

I am on birth control, and they tried to first prescribe me the pill. What a joke. Any female who takes the pill, or anyone who has seen it for that matter, knows it is probably the tiniest pill ever. I have never seen anything smaller than that. And I still can't take that. Now I am on Implanon, and that is the arm implant. That just shows that it's easier for me to get something punched into my arm from a gauged needle, and then get it surgically removed later, than to take a pill. Even when I got my wisdom teeth removed, the prescribed me Vicodin, and I couldn't take that either. So I just took the pain.

I don't know why I can't take pills, they just literally WON'T. GO. DOWN.

I can only do one at a time, and I sometimes have trouble with large ones.


Though today it's probably not any trouble if I just loosen the back of my throat and just swallow it, water and pill and all.

It's not hard to do if you can get yourself to not tense your throat up and drink water with it. If you hate water then drink it with something you actually like to drink, like juice or something. Just gotta pretend it's not there.

I wish It were that east, like you don't even know the things I have tried. I think I am afraid of choking? I am not even sure. But I have emetophobia, idk if that has something to do with it or not, but I have literally tried everything in the book. This has been a problem my whole life.

In that case, not really sure how you can deal with it. I kind of wish we could just have syrups instead of capsules though.

I agree, but I am not really sure if they can actually make them taste well.. I just wish they weren't necessary to take
