Is it a Cold, is it the Flu … It Really Doesn’t Matter if I Can’t Swallow the Pills That Are Supposed to Help Me Feel Better
“Ugh! Here comes another sneezing fit. This cold just won’t go away. I can’t seem to stop sniffling and sneezing and the pressure in my sinuses is terrible. I have to take some medicine to try to kick this and feel better, but what am I going to take? The liquid medicines just aren’t strong enough and I can’t seem to swallow those big pills. At this point, I’m so stuffed up I can’t really swallow anything. What am I going to do? I have to find a way to stop this suffering.”
Sneezing, coughing and sinus pressure. Chills, aches and pains. It’s cold and flu season.
We’ve all been there. We’ve all suffered from the symptoms the common cold or the flu can bring during the winter months. For many of us, the only thing worse than the cold or flu itself is trying to take the pills that are meant to help us feel better.
For many people, swallowing those over-the-counter cold and flu remedy pills, or those prescribed antibiotics is worse than the ailment they’re meant to fight. The pills just won’t slide down the throat, instead getting stuck; and what about the taste? The pills dissolve in the mouth leaving behind the most horrible taste. So rather than easing the pain and suffering, trying to swallow the pills creates more pain and suffering.
Now there is help, in the form of a pill coating. It’s called MEDCOAT®. It’s an innovative coating that makes pills slide down the throat more smoothly and covers up the bad taste of any medicine. It’s also perfect for alleviating the sharp edges of pills that need to be halved or quartered, and eliminates the need to crush tablets or add flavorings, which can alter the effectiveness of the medicines.
So, the next time you are feeling terribly, get some MEDCOAT® to help you swallow those cold and flu pills and feel better faster!
