    what is wrong with me?

    Does anyone on here have a pill phobia? I am so scared to take pills. I know it sounds dumb but I can't get past it. I have a UTI and the doctor prescribed Macrobid. I am scared to take it. I have been like this forever. Does anybody else have the same thing? It can cause breathing problems.
    I have that already with anxiety. Just went through a course of Keflex. I thought I was losing my mind. I couldn't even think and cried all the time. Please someone tell me I am not the only one.

    What exactly is it that you fear taking pills? Is it all pills, capsules or any medication if it could be in liquid form?

    The side effects. I finally took it and 2 days the pills got stuck in throat. My chest and back are on fire.

    But you are continuing to take it? Stuck capsules in the esophagus can cause extreme pain in the chest. I've hasd one of my fibre pills stick....ugh.

    I suggest you see a gastroenterologist. You might have extreme reflux or esophageal spasming.

    How are you taking them...with a big gulp of water or a sip? You might try taking a spoon of yogurt just before taking the pill (with a gulp of water).

    I just saw your reply. I ended up going to a gastro. He scoped me and stretched my esophagus. Feeling so much better now. Pills are going down fine now. Thank you so much for replying.
