I have seen people swallow several pills at one time without taking a drink. I can only swallow one pill at a time and I have to have a drink? How do you take your pills?

Normally I can take a handfull at a time. I take vitamins every morning and evening. I take them with water. If I have to though, I can do it without a drink.

I can't. It makes me gag every time. Thanks for posting.

My aunt can only take a few pills, and they have to be small. It's very painful for her to take pills.

It is not painful for me. I just gag from them.

I can swallow 4 pills at a time with water. Actually I also used to take one pill at a time but now I have become an expert.

No matter how many times I try I can't take more than one at a time. It can take me forever to take pills.

I can only swallow one at a time too. It took me till I was about 19 or 20 to even learn to swallow pills. I always marvel at those people who swallow a whole handful at once.

I don't see how they do it. I think maybe it has something to do with our gag reflex. Maybe ours is more sensitive.
