Just in case anyone needs to know, pain pills taste nasty if they're in your mouth even a fraction of a nano-second too long! Yuck! I do think prednizone from when I had those alergic reactions was worse, but not by much. Blech!

Ew, I hate that! I especially hate the ones that end up tasting metallic. It's so gross!

Indeed! And then the tasste sticks to your tongue too. I guess it's better than a needle every time we have to take our meds though. With rSD, needles aren't good, and then with RSD etc, we end up taking meds multiple times a day. That's how I put it into a sort of perspective.

I agree completely! Yes, I do indeed

Thankfully, some pills are little capsuls (I think that's what they're called). Sort of tube shaped things anyway. Those are coated and not so bad. One time, though, I took my anti-depressant which I take for nerve pain, and didn't swallow it fast enough. My whole mouth went numb. I found out later that there were some studies done on using that particular drug as a local anesthetic like novacaine. Weird huh?

And this is precisely why I always, always take any pills with juice or soda, never with water! All the better to mask the horrid taste.

I completely agree! The irony is that I was taking it with a Coke, but didn't have enough I guess. Thankfully, it's fgone now, but in the next hour, I get to try again. Yay, (note the sarcasm).

OH yeah, water when taking pills sucks. It can be done, but ugh! Yuck. And I hate pills anyway! Guess I'll not have a choise in a week or so...
Hope you got the other one down okay! Bleh!

Because of my heart condition I have to take *four* amoxicillin pills before I go to the dentist, all at once. I found that yogurt helps me to swallow the disgusting little creatures. I also never ever swallow large pills with water, in hopes that something flavored can mask the taste. Who says pills have no taste?

Totally agree
