You're a dirty bunch.
I actually had a review planned for today but the polish I wanted to use for a base (Cult Nails Time Traveler) bubbled like crazy and I don't know. The formula was just off. So instead I'm doing this.
Yes it's true I can't swallow pills. Now before you start giving me advice know that I have heard it all. "It's easy," "Throw it to the back of your throat then just drink water," "Put water in your mouth first then pop it in. That way you don't know it's there." I get it guys. Let me start by saying it is a head thing. In theory I know it's not hard to do but I just can't do it. There is something that just stops me and that is the hard thing to get over. I can swallow food and...other things(;P) but for some reason whole idea seems hard for people to understand.
Now you are probably wondering how do I take medicine?
1) Things like Oxycodone or Acetaminophen that aren't coated I put in hot chocolate and let it dissolve completely. So long as it's not cotaed it's wicked easy to dissolve. The hot chocolate generally tastes a bit less sweet but it's not bad.
Other drugs I wont mix apart from coated are iron(it made the hot chocolate taste like blood), and antibiotics(It tastes like licking the floor on the deepest darkest pits of hell.)
2) When I had my wisdom teeth out they prescribed antibiotics. They originally gave me "easy swallow" capsules. And let's be honest that really wasn't the time to learn and they ended up tasting horrific in hot chocolate. I eventually got the drug in liquid form. It tasted pretty good! So I will get stuff in liquid form. Loads of drugs come in liquid form you just have to ask.
3) Gummies. I take my multivitamin in gummy form(they make them for adults). It's actually the worst because you want to eat them all.
4) Things like ibuprofen generally come coated or in gel. If you dissolve these they are horrific. They are generally too harsh and will burn going down. So when I have aches and pains(like my back the other week) I will sometimes use children's medicine. I don't actually take a higher dosage because they recommend if possible you dose by weight. I fall just outside the highest dosage by a couple pounds. And yes, it does work AND taste like fruit punch.
I just keep getting weirder and weirder. Questions?
