Getting Older is Hard Enough Without Worrying About How to Take Your Medicine
Let’s face it, we are all getting older. It’s inevitable. No matter how healthy you are, how hard you try to stay in shape and eat a healthy diet, you can’t stop aging. While 50 may be the new 40 and 40 the new 30, the hands of time keep on ticking.
As I get older, I keep trying to find new ways to stay young. I try different diets, workouts, supplements, creams, etc. The search for the Fountain of Youth is constant. As I search, I also watch how aging is impacting my friends and family.
I see how some of my best friends struggle with the effects of aging, as they deal with injuries and illnesses that seem to happen “as you get older.” I also see how my Dad struggles, and the number of pills he now has to take daily to help him control pain, auto-immune disease and heart issues. To make matters worse, he started having trouble swallowing all of those pills, especially the “horse” pills. But getting those pills down is not as easy as it used to be – trust me, I’m learning that for myself as I get older.
As September is Healthy Aging Month, I thought it was the perfect time to try to find something that could help my Dad swallow those pills. I asked my pharmacist, I asked my doctor. Turns out they didn’t have any helpful solutions for people who have trouble swallowing pill. That’s when I turned to the internet and there it was … MEDCOAT®. MEDCOAT says it’s a pill coating that helps people swallow their pills by coating them so they slide down the throat easily. This coating also comes in different flavors that help cover up the bitter taste of pills. I ordered some to try out, because they just seemed too good to be true. Turns out, MEDCOAT is just that good. I tried them out on the supplements I take and they just slid down my throat. I gave a sample to Dad and he couldn’t believe how easy it was to take his medicine. This pill coating was exactly what he needed and now I’m telling all of my friends about it!
