I'd rather swallow a pill than to drink my medicine. I've got a stuffy head, so it's "on my mind."

When I was a kid, I always got this one type of sickness (can't remember what it was called, but it wasn't serious) and the doctor would prescribe this horrible stuff...it was thick and white and grainy and supposed to taste like bubble gum (which I hated), but MAN was it awful. It was so bad that everytime I drank it, I would throw up within fifteen minutes of tossing it back. I think because of that experience alone, I will always prefer to take a pill. Always.

I can relate- bubble gum has to be the worst medicine flavor! Our pharmacy has tons of flavors so you can choose what you want.

I can relate to that, but sometimes it's necessary to sleep.

I would rather swallow a pill. I swallowed some pills today. I have a very bad cold.

It seems to be going around, doesn't it? I've tried taking some vitamins to help my immune system. I hope it helps.

liquid medicine - liquid medicine
i think tht both are okay and that it is actually nicer to drink your medicine than swallow a pill.with me most of my pills get caught in the throat passage and only after some eforts i am able to push them in. whereas with liquid mecdicines i do ot have any problems of any kind! so liquid medicine is better! http://www.medicregister.com/Liquids_Powders/Suppliers/cid9.htm http://familydoctor.org/097.xml

I think pills are better because they go down quick and no taste.
