Thomas hates to take medicine, but I made him take several doses of pills over the last couple of days.
Last night I handed him two pills and a drink. As I stood there watching him, he put the pill in his mouth and started gagging.
"Why aren't you swallowing the pill?" I asked.
"They are so huge, I'm having a hard time with them. I had this issue with the last dose, too," he answered.
"But you didn't drink the water yet, so you shouldn't be swallowing," I responded, confused.
This was how I learned that Thomas was never taught to drink something to help you swallow pills.
When I take a pill, I actually put it under my tongue, and then use a drink of water to swallow it. I know the under the tongue thing is a little different, but it keeps me from tasting the pill, and they seem to go down better for me that way.
This makes me wonder... How do you swallow pills? Do you swallow the pill by itself and then drink something, or do you use a drink to aid in the pill swallowing? And do you put the pill under your tongue (I can't be the only one who does that, right)?
