DO you prefer to drink TABLETS? CAPSULES? SYRUP? or maybe... through INJECTION???? I prefer capsules because its not bitter compare to tablets. Some tablets have big size and i need to cut into two (actually i can let it pass through my esophagus, but i feel scary. Capsules always have regular size, so no problem with that. Its ok for injection, but no thanks dor syrup. At first its taste good, but later on... woah... no thanks!!! Anyway, i shall never complain with your physician about the kind of medicine, even its bitter or whatever, as long as it makes you get well. heheh! ^_____________________^

if i get a choice i will prefer syrup if its not bitter. also, some syrups are sweet then actually i like that type of syrups. but if i get a choice between tablets and capsules i prefer capsules just like you because they are not bitter like tablets.

i'd go for tablets. i hate capsules! lol. syrups are okay but if the taste is awful then that's yucky. i try to avoid injection but sometimes it's unavoidable so no choice there haha!

I prefer capsules as well. I don't like tablets unless they are small. I always have trouble getting them down my throat. Syrup is usually gross. I have not had that in a long time.

Anything i do for my health, even i have to drink a bad taste syrup, but if it able to restore my health, i will drink it, Since i understand that taking care our body is easy, the hard thing is to be able to maintain it.

In our country we dont have the option of selecting what type we want :| its like we have to accept what the doctor gives, even if it is a capsule to go in through your rear end. Ive had enough injections to be scared of one now, and i eat tablets mostly when im sick. It dont taste so bad. I mean we dont chew it right. Just gulping it down. One great thing about tablet is they start working inside the gut faster than the capsules ;)

I take so much medicine and it gets so darn old. I like tablets because they work the best. I dont like needles so I dont like injections. And I dont like capsules because to me I dont think they work as fast as tablets. And syrup works fast but it taste so icky!

I would prefer top use the capsules also because they are alot easier to swallow and they have no taste to them. I hate taking medicine and I just hate to take pills too. I have had to take them latelt though because I have bad allergies this year. It gives me a head, neck and earache.

I would say a tablet. I guess becuase you can cut them in half. Where as a capsule you have to swallow whole. Syrup can taste yucky and shots even though I take then 3 times a week. I wish all the time that something will come out soon that I can stop taking shots.

I also prefer capsules of moderate size. Next to capsules I prefer syrup. But I am a little bit affried of injections.... You may think its funny but its true. I don't like injections. I am also scared of watching some body else is taking injection.

I think of taking medicine is that I'm sick so I really don't want the idea of taking medicine but if had no choice then I prefer tablet. It's just that It is easy for me to swallow.
