how do you swallow a calcium pill?
Jiminy Crickets! These things are difficult to swallow. I don't understand it ... I even got the big bottle (of Calcium/Vitamin D) that says very plainly ... EASY TO SWALLOW. They are liars.
I'm supposed to take 1200 mg a day, which is two pills and I take one after breakfast and one after lunch. I was struggling so much with the full-size pill (which isn't all THAT big) so I cut them in half, thinking that would be easier. But it's not, it just makes me have trouble getting them down two times instead of once.
Anybody have any tips or tricks for swallowing a calcium pill? I've stuck 'em in the back of my throat, I've filled my mouth with liquid first and then the pill, I've tried to trick myself by eating a few bites first figuring that I'd be used to swallowing bigger items ... nothing works!
