Taking Meds
Aug 19, 2001

I am on a standard regimen Combivir and Viracept. I have trouble with so many pills and I saw a new product called SwallowEasy at a show. Is there any problem using this product? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Cohen

It should be fine to try - it is just a "thick" liquid that is designed to help some people who have trouble swallowing using just water. And after looking at the ingredients, there should not be any influence on absorbing the medications.

Of course that strawberry cherry banana flavoring may or may not be your favorite....

Hope it helps

Abacavir compromised by hot temperatures?
