I HAD the same problem....This is what i did to overcome it...I take a hunk of bread...chew it up till its mush in your mouth...then right as ur gonna swallow...throw the pill in the mush and down they go...

Eventually youll need less bread each time until you can just dry force it down like i can now.

This serioulsy worked for me. I never use a liquid to aid it down..i found that made it worse cause my brain was worried about something and my tounge woulndt push it down.

Umm..well then dont use bread...us like a cookie...just chew it till its mush in your mouth and when youd be ready to swallow...throw the pill in and swallow it all down.

Voilia...may take a you a few times tho but its the easiest way i can think of. Your tricking your brain into thinking your swallowing down food so you dont have that pill feeling in your mouth.

You can't crush them if there is liquid inside. Well...you can, but the liquid inside tastes horrible and will probably make you gag it back up.

Instead of bread, you could try some other kind of food that is soft, it should work...

i just put the pill in, pour some water in my mouth, and then swallow the water, pill goes right with it, i dont feel the pill, all is well. last time i tried to just swallow a pill without water i started choking and about died. which reminds me..

one time in the 5th grade i was being cool and throwing sweet tarts up in the air and them catching them in my mouth. and then once i put my head a little too far back and it went straight into my throat and i started choking and running around in little circles hitting myself and coughing to try to get it out and my friends laughed at me thinking i was making it up....bastards. :dodgy:

Tilt your head down when you swallow the pill. It's a myth that looking up and straightening your neck will help it go down easier. Look down and then try swallowing, that WILL help.

And no I'm not bull****ting you, it works.
