That's what I do too. I don't get why most people insist on putting dry, disgusting tasting things in their mouth. Put the water in first and you'll never know you took a pill - or how big it was or how many there were.
I do this too...started from my hating having a capsule stick to my tongue and having that nasty taste. Also easier to get the giant vitamins down.

I find that if I put the pill in first, it won't go down with the liquid. That's why I put liquid in first. Although its a bit awkward trying to put in the pill when your mouth is full of water Tongue

But for the most part, I like to take a swig first then pop the handful of pills in my mouth, then look at my hand to make sure no little small ones got stuck in a finger crevice (yes I have finger crevices), then one more swig to make sure everything got washed down. Drinking Beverage
WTAF is a finger crevice?

It's where the tiny little pills get stuck, of course.

RE: How do you take pills?
My vitamines are liquid so that's that.
If by chance I take an ibuprofen, I'll have a drink or at least make certain I have sufficient saliva going on before I get that pill in there.

Years ago, I chewed aspirin just to see what it was like. I didn't mind it too much because it tasted the way I expected - pretty shitty. But recently I chewed an ibuprofen... ekh... horrible!

I think all medication should be offered in melt-away tabs like the Listerine breath strips. I've noticed someone has made zinc melt-away strips for the cold season. It's a good idea especially for children or people who have trouble swallowing. Plus, people can have fun pretending to drop acid. Smile

Oh, that's true. Some meds are specifically made to be talken, "SL", or "sub-lingually". You are to put them under the tongue, and let them melt. Some heart meds, are SL...Lanoxin, and NTG, (Nitroglycerin). To a medical person the question posed has three answers,
p.o..or "per os", (by mouth), IV, (intravenously), and PR, (per rectum). Some meds, (like Tylenal suppositories for babies with high fevers, have to be given that way.)

Why is there no "I insert them rectally" option?
