If you swallow a chewable pill does it still have the same affect?
I got these pills because I am sick and they taste HORRIBLE so I swallow them but I don't seem to be getting better.

No there is no difference..chewable are for those that cannot swallow...

miss M.
it is supposed to be the same unless it is for your throat like a cough drop, because cough drops dissolve in your mouth and work with the saliva to numb your throat.

well if you don't like chewable pills, why don't you stop buying childrens medication and get some big-boy pills?

just take some motrin. you are too old for chewable pills anyways

YES. It still goes into your body doesnt it?!

Usually no, but chew-able pills are for people who can't swallow pills, get a regular pill so you don't taste the flavor

Ask for them in swallowable form.
It may not give the same healing effect if you swallow the chewable pill.

dont worry it will have the same effect

Yes the only reason the prescriber has you chew them is because they release faster. If your not getting better then I'd suggest going to the doctor and ask for better medicine.

they normally will take longer to absorb in the blood stream try crushing and taking them with honey or something sweet to hide the taste that is what we were told to do with my niece

Hope u fell better soon

i think it does have the same effect. there isnt any different from the both pills it thats the chewable pill is for the people that doesn't know how to swallow very well.

Chewables work faster. But, swallowing them should have the same effect after a moment.

They are "chewable." It doesn't say they MUST be chewed.

It does, in fact, have an effect. The onset may be a little more delayed to full strength of the pill due to the fact that chewing a pill increases the surface area exposed to digestive acid and enzymes to which it is exposed. Chewing provides more contact to the pill, thus allowing the digestive process (which chemically begins in your mouth) to have a more thorough effect. If you were to rub a little Vick's under your nose before you chew the pill, your semse of smell may become interrupted enough to reduce the taste of the pill.

when you chew pills the effect start sooner then when you swallow them so you'll get the same effects just a little bit longer to feel them

Only delayed action.

BH's brother
Not always. Usually, if the directions say to chew them, then it is so that the medicine can be released and absorbed as fast as possible. If you just swallow them, they are released too slowly to help you.

if it says chewable then yes but others are time released and should not be chewed.
