Pills and the Band



Recommended Posts

Well Ok this may be gross to some people but I could never do the desolving of all my pills then taking them its way too gross. So I came up with my own method. One at a time I stick a pill in the side of my teeth and chew it up as tiny as I can get it then I take a big sip of Water and swallow it down, The bad taste only lasts a minuet that way. Then I do it over and over a few times I also have to take a capsual medication so I pull it apart dump it on my tongue and gulp down some water again. after thats all done I wash it all down with my chewable muti Vitamin which is almost like desert at this point. So far this is the best method I have found for taking my pils because they are all pretty large and I hate tasting them. I never space them out when I take them I just want to get it over with, They are almost my Breakfast sadly lol. ;)

Just be sure that if you're crushing pills that they can be taken that way. If you crush a 'time release' pill you get the full dose immediately and it can be dangerous.

If you're not sure if it's ok to crush YOUR meds, talk to your doctor before you do it!

As for me, I take Biotin, Flax Seed Oil, Vitamin E, and Nexium every day. I only wait a few seconds between each pill and haven't had a problem . . . so far. I also take a Multi-Vitamin every day but it's liquid so it doesn't really apply to this thread!

ive found that when i take a pill, i guess since it takes long to actually hit your system, takes a looong time to take affect

Thats sounds horrible. I guess that beacuse I only had one fill Im able to swollow 3-4 pills (not small ones) at once withouth any problems. It definitely helps that I drink like two cups of Water with the pills to flush them dow.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
