: : I have trouble swallowing all the pills the doctors prescribed for me after my stroke. As a result, the only way I can take my pills is to crush them and put them in pudding. The only problem with this is I am not strong enough to get them all the way crushed with the pill crusher (thank goodness my dad does it for me).Actually, this may not be a stroke problem, because before the stroke I could barely swallow pills.

My father had a massive stroke February 4 and cannot swallow pills. I used to try crushing them, you are right, it is very difficult. Now I just dissolve them in a tiny amount of water and add them to applesauce.

: hi, when i have trouble swallowing one of my 110 pills a week i eat a cracker when taking the pill it helps me.Larry
