If the thought of that horse pill makes you choke up inside, consider this pill-and-chaser combo cup: you fill it up, put your meds in, and let gravity deceive your posterior pharynx.
The Pill Takers Cup is available on Amazon.com, where one reviewer wrote:
“The cup itself is not hard plastic, but made of medical grade silicone. It tastes gross and fake. Plus, the cup has sharp edges that cut my tongue. Little pills fall thorugh, and big ones don’t fit.It choked me, and almost killed me. Don’t buy your child this…..they WILL die…”
Makes a good shot glass, too.
