Is there any way she could like crush them all up and just eat it with something? If so what would you guys reccommend to eat with it? thanks in advance

Crush them up, stuff in mouth, drink water, swallow. Want to eat it with something? Pick some food, throw it in, eat food. Not rocket science, really.

I've known people to crush them up and drop them in orange juice. Don't know if that has any ill effect on the quality of the vitamin, though.

Totally off topic....

But I had to read this thread because on the main page it says "My mom has tro[uble] sw[a]llowing"

^ LOL that's what I did too. I was expecting some big funny joke or at least someone to respond to it as such.

My friend takes powdered vitamins. Look into those. Just mix them with a liquid.

My sister had the same problem she couldn't swollow any pill, have your mom practice swollowing red hots or something to practice it should help. albanat0r also made a good point the gummy bear vitamins should work and they are oh so good. I just belnd mine in my morning shake but that is just so that is 2 less pills I have to take.

If your mom can't swallow pills, then how does she swallow her food? It's the same thing, only the pills are a lot smaller than chunks of food that you swallow. You just have to swallow with confidence. ;)

^ thats what I tell her!!! It IS the same thing. She's just paranoid or something. thanks for the replies

I think maybe it has to do with the smaller size, and having issues getting it swallowed along with the liquid used to wash it down. Like a minor coordination issue between the tongue, swallowing, etc.
