And i NEED to take all 20 of them in ten days and my mom is gonna be so mad cuz it was expensive and i have to get them down without chocking every day! please help!

kk i had that same problem ahaha water everywere but anyways it gets easyer u could
1. cut the pill(this well tast bad)
2. put ur head back and swallow
3. put water in ur mouth first and then put the pill in and drink more (this one worked the best)
good luck (i hate pills)

A pill is no bigger than a bite of food so it's not a physical problem. However, in nursing homes they give pills in things like pudding, something you can swallow without chewing. Put the pill in a huge spoonful of pudding or yogurt or ice cream and then swallow.

ok, now that i have ur attention, you might not be able to cuts the pills if they are capsules. if they have a powder in them, you might spill some, messing up the dose or wasting the pills. Also, taking the powder out of the pill might make them work differently, such as being released too fast. instead, ask the doctor or pharmicist for a liquid prescription or something chewable. usually when you say you have a hard time swallowing pills they understand. ur not the only one who cant swallow them, so dont feel embarrased.

I don't think your mom is going to be mad if you told her that you keep choking on them. Did you ever try cutting them in half and then swallowing them? That's what I did when I was younger. You should also ask your doctor for smaller pills next time.

Calm down... This may not sound appitising but you dont chew them you put them in pudding. You use a pill cuter and put some in a bowl of pudding... then just swallow with your pride thinking that the pill is not in there. I had this problem this Christmas and i did not discover this one till i was almost out. Trust me it works

Hi!!! =]
if you can maybe cut them up or something and put it in applesauce or pudding. my mom did this and i couldn't even notice it!

i couldnt swallow pills at your age too...
Try to put them really close to your throat and dont take a big gulp, but not too little. Try not to think about them being there and swallow the whole thing at once and youll see that sooner or later youll be used to it. Thats what I did and it really helped.
Good luck :]]

Fill your mouth with water then place pill in without it touching any part of the inside of your mouth. This works for me because I pretend the pill isn't there. Then just swallow.

I always had trouble with pills when I was your age, too. Ask a pharmacist for suggestions. Some pills can be chewed even if they do taste absolutely horrible. Others can be ground up and mixed with food or drink. Some pills, however, won't work if you do that. Your pharmacist will know and maybe even have some suggestions. For antibiotics, there are liquid alternatives, but your doctor would have to okay the change in prescription.

Calm down and try this. Get some soft food you like, yogurt, softened ice cream, pudding, cottage cheese, anything that you can take a mouthful of and swallow easily. Put the pill in a spoonful of that, and swallow it whole. I recommend stuffing the capsule into a spoonful of ice cream, the cold and the fact that the ice cream starts to melt helps it slide right down.
If that doesn't work, go to the pharmacist and ask for a liquid version of the medicine, or ask if the contents of the capsules can be dumped into food and eaten, like applesauce for example. Some capsule shaped tablets can be crushed and mixed into a spoonful of soft food. There are ways to get the med's down, you just have to find one that is right for you.

Pretend to chew with pill in center of mouth and swallow.

trick Your throat in to thinking its chewed up food!

place the pill at the back of your throat, then take a big drink of water.

There's always another alternative......through the "other end"!
that's all I'm going to say, no joke!
