The Doctors: Advice for Swallowing Pills
The Doctors had already helped a women who needed to get something out of her child’s nose and explained what a sore throat could mean to one woman, but it was time to tackle a less common problem: difficulty swallowing pills. Dr. Travis Stork said when he was in med school he was helping a woman who had injured her throat because she took a pill right before bed, laying down, and the pill got lodged in her throat. This caused the pill to disintegrate in the wrong place and resulted severe inflammation in her throat.
As much as not being about to swallow a pill may seem trivial, it can cause some big problems. Dr. Andrew Ordon gave the woman, Monique, a few tips for swallowing pills. First, drink some water to moisten the mouth. Then, in a standing position put the pill in your mouth and drink a full cup of water. For capsules, which float, he recommended putting the capsule in a glass of water and then putting the water in the mouth without swallowing. Tilt the head forward, allowing the capsule to float to the back of the throat, and then throw the head back and the pill should go down easily.
Dr. Jim Sears said it is good to have children practice swallowing pills by giving them little candies about the size of the pills. This way they get a little reward for practicing. Dr. Travis Stork cautioned against chewing pills if you are unable to swallow them. Some pill are designed to dissolve in the stomach.
