Scared of tablet/pill ?
« on: February 04, 2014, 01:27:56 PM »
Hey I'm 14 and have been prescribed these pills/tablets to take once daily for acne. I have never taken pills before and I'm really scared I will choke and suffocate... Does anyone have any tips ?

Hi, I was a little nervous about swallowing pills when I was younger, as well! It's simple... first of all, don't over think it. That will make swallowing the pill much harder. Here is what I do:

Gather some saliva in your mouth. Place the pill in your mouth, and get it towards the back of your throat. Then, take a big gulp of water or any other liquid. Just keep swallowing like you normally would when you drink water. Don't even think about the pill being there, or you will make it difficult to swallow it!
