    Are you also afraid of taking tablets or capsule thinking you might choke?

    Yep...always have been since childhood, remeber my best friend in our bathroom at home trying to help my MOM to get me to take a baby aspirin...I take medicines each day and am amazed that I was that bad. I am afriad of getting choked on my bottled water, and take pills individually instead of a handful since the water thing started...We all have these fears, and or phobias!

    Yes. When I was younger, my mom had to cut or open up those pills just so I can swallow it. It's a bit better now, but like Diane, I take it in individually.

    Yes, and even if you are a seasoned expert the pill can always go sideways by chance and be stuck in your throat until it dissolves on its own.  If it's not a coated prescription pill, or a gel tab, I bite it in half! But you shouldn't bite coated prescription pills since the coating may help with a time-release mechanism.

    No it doesn't bother me to swallow large tabs or capsules.  But I do have a phobia about the side effects of anything I ingest.  So I rarely take anything except ibuprofen and I go through that like crazy.

    If the doctor has advised and prescribed a particular medicine, you are supposed to take if you want to get well. If the tablet is thick and little big in size you can cut  it into two pieces and take it with a glass of water in hand one by one. . Whereas if the medicine is in the form of a capsule it is easily swallowed with the help of water. Don't get scared of   big size  tablets or capsules as the fear comes out of  our thoughts and it can be vanished if our thoughts are strong and positive.
