  • I started having problems with it when I got pregnant because your gag reflex changes, but that's obviously not your husband's problem. Some people, after taking pills for a long time, start having trouble because they're psychologically tired of having to take them. It happens.

  • I've never been able to swallow pills. I take them with food, preferably something moist. This morning it was with my banana. Yesterday it was with my sweet potatoes.
