It is a wonderful lubricant.

2. Eat a pb&j
Swallowing with food is easier.

5. Betha-
Coat them with butter....seriously. I know it sounds gross, but it works.

I am an RN and when we had to dispense caps or pills that people had a hard time getting down, we just smeared some butter around the capsule.

VIOLA!

8. Hell I can dry-swallow something as big as a horsepill
I take a bunch of suppliments everyday and I'll pop about 6-7 at at time and have no problem with downing them with just a sippie of water!

11. Stop
trying to swallow capsules. Seriously, a small piece of bread usually works, follwed by a bit more water.

When you put a capsule in your mouth, put it in lengthwise - hopefully it will go all the way down that way.

12. I swallow them with food.
I have gotten some stuck sometimes that make me not be able to swallow - food or drink - until they are through (a few minutes) ... not fun at all x(

14. As an alternative, and this worked great for my little sis when she was
in the hospital . . .

Take a mouth full of water, insert the pill and tilt your head forward then swallow. The water will float the capsule up to your throat and make it easier to swallow.
