For some people I spoke to, taking meds was difficult because of swallowing problems. One trick those folks use is to buy a thickening agent. One caregiver told me, ” I buy Thick It by the case of six gallons on Amazon and use it all the time. You have to get the right consistency for him to drink. You don’t want it too thick, you don’t want it too thin.”
This can sometimes be covered by insurance and some people obtained it that way rather than ordering online.
