Help! I’m Sick and Now Have to Take These Horse Pills to Feel Better?
I woke up one morning and my head was just aching, and I was completely stuffed up … I caught the dreaded cold going around! I thought I had been so careful, staying away from people and washing my hands all the time, but somehow those terrible little germs found me.
I called my doctor, and he sent in a prescription for an anti-viral medication. So, off to the pharmacy I went. When I got there and picked up the pills, I looked and realized how big they were, and I started to freak out. I mean, who can swallow horse pills like these? I turned to the pharmacist and asked for help – is there anything that could be used to coat these chalky-looking, huge pills?
“As a matter of fact,” she said, “There is a coating for your pills, it’s called MEDCOAT.” I was so excited to hear this! The pharmacist handed me a package of MEDCOAT and explained that it is a coating that helps pills slide down the throat smoothly, even if they need to be cut up, it will coat the rough edges. Bonus, it also covers up any bad taste when the pills dissolve!
I immediately purchased the MEDCOAT and headed home to try it out. I took one of the prescription pills, pushed it through the MEDCOAT applicator and then took my horse pill. It slid right down my throat with no issue – no coughing, choking or gagging. This pill coating is amazing!! I’m so glad to know about MEDCOAT and will be using it for all my prescriptions from now on.
