    MAKES ME WANT TO THROW UP.I FEEL LIKE A WHOLE NEW PERSON WHEN I TAKE THEM BUT THEY ARE SO BIG AND SMALL TERRIBLE.

    WHEN I OPEN THE BOX I START GAGGING.I TRIED PUTTING THEM IN MY BULLET [LIKE A SMALL BLENDER] AND ZAPPING THEM. THEN I PUT THEM IN LIQUID AND TRIED TO DRINK THEM DOWN.

    UUUUUUUGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!

    SUGGESTIONS? I NEED TO TAKE THEM 3 TIMES A DAY.

    Always take pills and vitamins while drinking from a coke bottle. This somehow bypasses the gag reflex. A regular cup does not work.

    I hate taking em too! But this helps me swallow them. --Instead of water, take them (swallow)with something thick like a homemade smoothie, or one of those new smoothies you can buy at grocery store for 3 bucks (in the produce area), or even OJ with lots of pulp.

    So much easier than water, and it also helps mask the taste. Try it!!
