Do you swallow all your pills at once?

I have to take a ton of meds twice a day. I swallow all of them at once. If I sipped water and swallowed them one at a time I would be water logged.

  • My hubby can take all his vitamins in one gulp, but I have to swallow mine one at a time, and even then I sometimes gag.

  • When I take medicine, I take it all at once unless they are supposed to be spread out. I don't have a problem with it.
    Several years ago, long before Kyra came along, I was sort of hooked on benadryl. I just couldn't sleep without it, felt like I HAD to have it. It got to where I was taking 20-25 at day, at once. I would just dump them in my palm, take a drink, and drop them in my mouth with the drink and swallow and take another drink to wash it down.
    Now, I only take one or two on the bad allergy nights, and some ibuprofen for headaches, but I'll take them together.

  • I take 27 pills in the AM and 27 in the PM. If I had to take 54 sips of water I would be sick to my stomach with bloat. These pills are what I need to keep me alive, so I got used to it. Going on 10 years now, I don't even think about it anymore.

  • I take a vitamin tablet and I take a daily Rx capsule and I take those separately (due to 1 being a big gel tablet and 1 being a small light capsule). When I have a headache and take excedrin I will take it with my vitamin tablet.
