this is good for kids that haven't had pills before
I recently had an ear infection and was given 10 (disgusting, gross) pills to make me better
but i'd never had a pill before and couldn't swallow them so this recipe was the best way to get the medicine down

before we start let me tell you a few ways not to take a pill

Do not i repeat do not take the pill with
Custard
cordial
or water
because it is gross G,R,O,S,S !!!!

also when you receive you pills ask your pharmasist if the pills are ok to crush and take with milk in most cases this will be fine but better safe than sorry.

  • Step 1

    take the pill and crush it between the 2 spoons you will need a strong person to do this

    alternatively you can put the pill on a chopping board and use a meat cleaver to crush it

  • Step 2

    put 1 big spoon full of honey into a glass of milk
    and microwave for about 20 seconds

    then mix with a spoon until all the honey is dissolved. Microwave again if necessary

  • Step 3

    quickly mix in the crushed pill and skull the buttermilk

    hope this made taking your pills a little easier
    love miss cookie

i can't swallow pills at all for some reason, so i crush them up and put them in a scoop of ice cream. i can't taste them at all, not even a little bit. i think it's cuz the cold numbs my tongue to it? i'm not sure. but it beats putting it in tea or yogurt like i used to. that was nasty..made me want to puke.

A friend of mine years ago crushed his meds and put them in pudding cups, he said he couldnt tell the difference so thats also a good way to take them if you have a hard time swallowing pills. It used to be hard for me, it got easier but I just got these giant Omega supplements and Im back to gagging every morning haha!

A trick I learned from my pastor's wife, don't tilt your head back when you swallow pills, it closes the throat. Keep your head level for it to stay open. I had a big gag reaction to swallowing pills and this has helped a lot.

sorry i edited but it is really slow so i'll just post here

be sure to ask your pharmasist when you get the pills if they can be crushed and taken with milk in most cases this will be fine but better safe than sorry

thanks to the people that made me aware of this
