Pills getting stuck in my throat

Since my thryoid is inflammed (even thoug the idiot endo said he couldn't feel a thing), my synthroid keeps getting stuck in my throat. I have to drink almost a whole glass of water and massage my throat to get it down. Does that mean it's not all getting into my system?

Re: Pills getting stuck in my throat

No it just means you need to find a way to take the pill without it getting stuck. Perhaps a small amount of pudding or jam or something on a spoon with the pill will help or even taking it with milk instead. It will get into your system no matter where it melts but it might cause irritation of your throat if it isn't going down quickly...however,drinking all that water is very good for you.

Since this is my Synthroid, and you're not supposed to eat food or take anything with calcium, I don't know if that would work.

Re: Pills getting stuck in my throat

Try taking pills with warm water.

I have a very dry mouth/throat and often have pills get stuck. When I switched to warm water instead of cold to wash down my pills it made a big difference.

My mouth isn't dry, my thyroid is inflammed. Thanks though.

I understood your problem...the warm water may still help the pills go down. It's worth a try isn't it?
