Advice That Makes It Easy to Swallow

October 30, 1994

Re "A Bitter Pill to Swallow" in C.A. Wedlan's "Health Roundup" (Oct. 18): Because I must consume "big, chalky horse pills," (calcium), I can suggest a method that helps.

Generally, people will throw their heads back, closing the throat too soon. Tilting the head forward and placing the pill on the tongue facilitates swallowing the pill with a large sip of water. It works.
