Hey guys, well, I called the doctor and the health clinic today (it sure felt good to get some stuff taken care of). I am going in either tomorrow morning or the morning after and I'm getting my refills, I think I get 4 (?). Anyways, I called a doctor that my mom was seeing (she just had a hystorectomy and had an assigned doctor, she doesn't have insurance either), and she said that it sounds like I have a vitamin deficiency. I get the boils and stuff under my arms and stuff too, Smurfy. So anyways, I have to take those CENTRUM pills and they're so friggin huge, I try taking them with lots of water and I try cutting them in half but they are just too darn big and I can't swallow them. *sighs* Is there any way I can take these pills, orally, without gagging them back up!?

Sweetie, this board if for emergencies. If you can't take your vitamins prescribed to you, your best bet would be to ask your doctor. Honest. Maybe he/she can give you something in liquid form.

Ya..swallowing pills is not an emergency. I cant swallow pills. So if they are too big just cut them in half until you can swallow them, or you could always crush them.

I agree with Smurfy, see your doc. They do make pills chewables, and you may also be able to get them in liquid form.

Make sure next time you post it is for a real emergency. This isnt a big deal.

Applesauce. A spoonful should help get the pills down.
