I used to be the "girl who couldn’t swallow pills." Once, when I was like 7 or 8, my dad wanted me to take something and I put it on my tongue and drank an entire glass of water and when I opened my mouth, it was still there.

Now look at me, quite the little drug-ie girl... I’m taking my nightly pills, which is 4 of them + vitamin C. And then in the morning, I do 1 + 2 big vitamins (multi and B) + 1 small vitamin B12. That’s just so crazy in comparison!

And I’m crazy for still being awake - I didn’t get much sleep last night because we had lunch with my family, which meant getting up much earlier than normal... so I should be asleep by now anyhow, and I should have gone to bed a while ago to to make up for this morning. Ahhh, well, I’m taking my drugs now, and hopefully I’ll go to sleep quickly. smile And sleep in tomorrow. smile

I’m exactly the same! The first time I swallowed a capsule, I about 11, staying at my sister’s house - she was about 18, and I was burning up with fever. After 11 years of having to have Mum crush them up, and taking tablets in a spoonful of honey or jam, I just had to do it. And now I can pop 'em like candy! smile

That’s odd, I’ve never had a problem taking tablets or pills. At least you can take them now without a problem. Hope you slept well. sleep

yeah, i can pop like six at the same time now. amazing. and i was a liquid tylenol kif for years. my mom was starting to think i liked the taste. smile

Hey, Kristine! I know what you mean about not liking to swallow pills. When I was born, the doctors told my parents that I had a thin throat and would have difficulty swallowing things/would be prone to choking. I used to *hate* taking pills ... but now I’m much better at it. Swallowing two aspirin at a time with water is a MAJOR achievement for me ... and God, what am I going to do with those HUGE prenatal vitamins someday? Ack. sad Anyway, I sympathize with you, and maybe as we grow older our ability to swallow pills gets better somehow? I don’t know. Have a good day! smile

I have huge tonsils (never had them removed) and I always have problems swallowing pills. Now what I do is fill my mouth with water first, then lean back, open up, smack them in, and toss my head back to swallow. wink
