The Best Way To Swallow Pills

The Best Way To Swallow Pills

I’m the one they call Doctor Feelgood. I’m
gonna make you feel alright. By teaching you how to swallow pills. If you’re anything like my lovely and beautiful
and talented wife, you probably have a very hard time putting medication into your body
because it’s borderline physically unbearable for you to swallow pills. It’s seriously
a 5 minute journey of frustration and sadness even when my wife is ingesting something as
tiny as a tylenol. And she’s not alone. Studies suggest 1 in 3 people experience difficulty
when tasked with swallowing oral medications in pill and capsule form, which ultimately
leads to many people skipping out on vital doses of prescription medication because they
simply don’t want to expose themselves to the literal pain of popping pills. That’s
not good and that’s why researchers from the University of Heidelberg, in Germany,
rounded up 143 patients and subjected them to some pill swallowing tests. They had them
gulping down all sorts of shapes and sizes and they did so to try and identify the best
methods for getting the good stuff down the gullet. And they found that there is a best
way to swallow capsules and a different best way to swallow tablets. And each method directly
correlates with the density of the pills compared to water. So, let’s say you’re rocking
some pretty gnarly allergies and you need to down an anti-histamine capsule. With capsules,
the research team discovered that the “lean-forward” technique is the most efficient and is 88%
more effective than old-school methods. Allow me to demonstrate. You’ll need your drugs,
I’m using a tic tac, and 20ml of water, which is somewheres around a tablespoon. You
simply place the capsule on your tongue, take a sip of water, don’t swallow yet, first,
you lean forward by tilting your chin toward your chest, and then swallow. (Do it) Yum.
Because the density of a capsule tends to be lower than water, your head position keeps
the little bugger from swimming around in your mouth before it’s journey down to tum
tum town. Tablets tend to be more dense than water so a different technique is required
to basically help shoot the dang things down your throat. It’s called the pop-bottle
method. So lets say you get your daily vitamins like the rest of us and you’re tasked with
swallowing a horse pill every single day. You simply find a flexible pop-bottle like
container, fill it with water, pop the horse pill into your mouth, and then tightly wrap
your lips around the opening of your bottle like you’re giving it the good loving, and
then without letting air seep into the bottle, maintain firm lip-to-bottle contact and use
a sucking motion to flush the tablet into your body. (Do it) If you’re doing it right,
you should feel the bottle slightly collapse into itself. Now, both these methods were
tested against simply taking a sip of water and swallowing, something that most people
do I assume, and the patients pill-swallow rate greatly increased when utilizing the
pop-bottle and lean forward techniques. So, if you’re one of the 1 in 3 plagued with
an inability to swallow pills, give these methods a shot. They just might cure what
ails you. I’m Dr. Joe Bereta and I just insulted all the doctors of the world by calling
myself a doctor. I’m sorry. Hey, do you guys have any techniques that work for you,
