I had a lot of problems with swallowing pills when I was younger, especially considering their size (Big because of bronchitis stuff).

Yep, I still have trouble too. Doesn't help the few meds I take are in ginormo-pill format. Like uhhh guys, let me take two smaller ones, that's more fun and less "what I just bought is trying to kill me" fear inducing :P

When I was younger, I had a hard time taking medicine. I would spit it up. 

Now, not really.

I used to hate pills, but now I take meds for my depression and anxiety everyday, so I've gotten a lot more used to it. I hardly even have a problem with bigger pills now.

I had trouble with the smallest pills when I was younger. Eventually it occurred to me that the reason it was so hard to swallow them was because I was closing my throat when the pill got to the back. Ever since then, I haven't had a problem! My sister on the other hand... :laugh:

Personally, I never had trouble swallowing pills. Though lately it's not as easy as it used to be.

Lmao gonna be honest. I have a couple pills I take at night that are fairly small. Sometimes if I’m too lazy to go get water I’ll get enough spit and just swallow em no problem :mlp_please:

I can swallow most meds without any problem unless they're absolutely HUGE. But if I have any concerns I just break the pill or capsule in half and take them in increments.

I’ve had to take pills the majority of my life, all different shapes and sizes. The main reason bigger pills can be hard for me to swallow is because some of the meds I take cause difficulty to swallow :0

but mostly I have no problem as of now :squee:

I used to have a hard time trying to take pills like two years ago. It’s really because I tried to avoid swallowing solids but by now I’m very used to swallowing pills. Still trying to avoid swallowing a quarter since what happened back when I was 7 when I almost did.

I usually don't have trouble with it, but sometimes I have to swallow a couple of times or more to get the pill down my throat.

Always with a drink, by the way. I tried swallowing them without and I end up spitting them up since they taste awful without a drink to distract. Onto pills, not if they're tiny, like my birth control pills that make my period come. But if they're big, like orange and green cold pills I took for a bit, then if I don't swallow them immediately, it takes a few gulps to get them down. And then it feels like they're still in my throat. I think I got a bit of a sore throat from having to swallow those things.

I never have trouble swallowing pills...I never have to take them anyway. Except maybe Ibuprofen during the rare times when I might have a fever or pain somewhere.

I have been taking all sorts of medications for nine years now so I have gotten used to swallowing pills of all shapes and sizes.

I've never had any problems with pills. If it does feel like one is struggling to go down, then I just drink a glass of water with it. Cough syrups and other liquidy things is where I can struggle a bit. They could certainly make those a little more palatable.
