Fenugreek Q & Cookie Q

I try to take fenugreek. 3 capsules 3x a day. I suck at swallowing pills though. I psych myself out and end up over thinking it so much that when I finally do work up the lady balls to attempt it, it gets stuck. All the time! I hate taking pills unless I really need them for this reason. So my question: can I just dump the capsules into a small beverage and chug it down for the same effect?


I have a lactation cookie recipe I'm going to test out this weekend. Is 3 per day enough to give me a boost? When I stop eating them will my supply drop off right away? I don't want to be eating that many cookies for a long time. I'm really not trying to gain a ton of weight in the milk boosting process.

I have a hard time taking pills too. If I put some water in my mouth first and then put the pill in and swallow them together, it helps a lot.

I'd rather take the fenugreek separate and not have to swallow it in the capsule, if it'll work the same. :p
