Pill Swallowing, Part 2

Posted Feb 09 2011 1:59pm

So this is getting a little easier, though Nathan still doesn’t “get” that he should just swallow the pills.  Darn it.

We’ve tried burying it in yogurt and now we’re trying to swallow them with juice.  Somedays it works, other days he chews it.  The last two days he’s chewed but he expresses less anger with juice than yogurt.  So, that’s something.

I’m trying to teach him with Country Life Biotin (I get it in 5 mg capsules from www.iherb.com ) because they are the smallest ones I’ve ever seen.  We’re also experimenting with a gluten-enzyme which is in a bigger capsule.  I think it must taste awful but he’s motivated to swallow it because then he can try challenging the diet.

So, it isn’t going as well as I had hoped but not the worst either.
