Major pill swallowing Anxiety!
« on: January 29, 2013, 03:15:43 AM »
   Hi guys and gals, I can really use your help!  I get pill swallowing anxiety!  I've read just tilt your head back, chin on your chest, just pretend your eating good pieces of food, ect.  I will admit I look rediculous trying really hard to swallow, even little pills!  My throat or the esophagitis just closes.  And I'm there ''OK ONE TWO THREE JUST SWALLOW''! :spineyes: Repeding myself! I try to swallow a pill in my own room, I do look ridiculous :(.  And even there is the gag reflex.  I know you will not actually chock on a pill.  There has been an avertising on this special cup that you take with your pills, ever herd of it?  Can it help?
   Any ideas or how you over came it? Thanks.

I had the same thing...just put the pill in your mouth and fill your mouth with water and take a big gulp it will go down easy...forget the pill is there..just act like your really thirsty

I have to use a pill crusher. Which meant certain types of medication only. As some medication is not meant to be crushed. But they also have a sollutab form of certain types of medication. I was put on one of these. Tablet melts on your tongue. The rest I simply crush and mix with jam and down the hatch in one go.

  Thats probably what I got to start doing, crush and mix.  I'm just ashamed at myself :(. They are little perscribed pills!  I even tried a easy throat swallowing spray, and my throat still closed up :angry:.  I'll see what else there is to do, thanks guys  :happy0151:

I wish I knew! I seem to never be able to truly overcome this fear! I'll have periods where its a bit easier and i have more confience in beng able to swallow it, but when im at my worst, i make such a fool of myself. I too, go to my bedroom, and end up smearing the tablet on my face, almost vomiting from all the water i have drank, or chewing the tablet which tastes absolutely gross :(
Just know your not alone, all it takes, is confidence and belief in yourself.
