Yes, swallowing pills rarely bothers me....I occasionally have a problem with one that is huge however generally I am able to swallow pills easily.
In fact, in the morning I take about 4 at once, including two herbal ones and the only problem is that by the time I get to the sink and pour the water, one of them (vitamin B) keeps dissolving and tastes disgusting!

As I have had to take medication for some years now, it is not a problem for me.

So you need to start typing #DittoFiny lol
I have problem swallowing pills. The most pills are OTC pain or cold tablets.
I can have issues with, if they're not coated sometimes they get a bit sticky to swallow.
If they are capsules sometimes they float with the water.
I know it seems involved but all tablets seem to require a different technique to get them down. Once you master the technique you're fine.
I find using a pump type of water bottle fixes any issues.
I don't have any issues with swallowing pills. I have had to do it from a young age, so it is second nature now
Not always, I am getting better....but gosh!
it has taken a lifetime.
I throw my head back, and hope for the best :(
Poor lady. Isn't she better yet? She's been at it for hours and hours and hours . . . . . . [00]

Nope. Not personally.

But one of my children does and it can be a real pain for him. Horrible gag reflex :(
Sure...but "tablets" (round ones without the coating) tend to get lodged in my throat. Thanks guys.

I rarely have trouble swallowing pills.

No. I take a few every day and wash them down with a berocca to disguise any disgusting flavour. I don't like needles so am glad that I can have them in pill form rather than IV at the hospital.
I have no trouble.
Accompanying my grandmother to the naturopath once , my Grandmother described that she opens her throat when taking pills. She demonstrated and the naturopath copied her and remarked that she didn't know how to do that before. My Grandmother must have taught me when I was little because that is what I do also.
swallow with spoonfull of yogurt slip down easily
Oooh, you clever thing!!! :-))

I have a problem as they stick in my throat and I'm thankful that I rarely have to take pills.
I have no problems at all with swallowing tablets which is a good thing when I consider that I now have to have some very important ones to help me live each day in relative comfort!!! I take all 5 of my 6 a.m. pills in a single swallow, and only once have had a problem which meant I discovered how utterly bitter they are!!
Not a problem at all. Can't remember that last time I took any kind of pill. Am very blessed with good health and have never been on a long term medication.
Unfortunately I'm useless at taking tablets. I choke and gag and have to fight not to throw up! Even 'normal' sized ones. And don't even start me on what I call 'horse' tablets! Those things cause me no end of problems.
Thank goodness the pill is so tiny! ;)
My daughter is like you :(

Unfortunately, our osophagus narrows as we get older and that makes it more difficult to swallow pills of any size or shape., some of your suggestions are good, yoghurt or honey, or lots of liquid helps
I love being able to throw down almost any tablet without water.

Only occasionally does this carefree approach backfire when I gag on it and have to have a second go at swallowing it - some tablets taste REALLY awful.
Yes, I do swallow pills easily, with a glass of water.
Yes I can easily take tablets, except I don't seem to need to take any, but when I did last take 1 or 2 for a cold, it went down well with water.
