Okay, Call Me Insensitive, But....

How could someone who is 5'8" and weighs over 350 pounds, have trouble swallowing a pill?

Just a nursing observation.

    Suggest the pill be used as a suppository and see how fast it gets swallowed!

    More fatty McFatties wanting special attention. And over eating is NOT a disease, its a nasty, self indulgent habit.

    BTW, I'm overweight myself, so I'm somewhat of an expert on the topic.

    Sometimes I gag on larger pills, I need take them with water, and quickly swallow, it is likely psychosomatic reaction in nature.

    I'm thinking it's more of the sedentary life style now a days.

    Moments? I have been accused of having more than moments.

    Dan, you're insensitive. Coat the pill in grease and there will be no problem.

    After many years of dealing with patients, I think that problem is not so much with the pill or the swallowing apparatus, but originates about 3-4 inches above that area.
    Just my opinion. Yeah, everyone has one. :roll:
