I took my first Nuedexta capsule which I took dissolved in a shotglass od Dr. Pepper. It tasted so awful I could barely get it down. I am unable to swallow capsules. Are you all able to swallow capsules or do you all have feeding tubes you shove the capsule down or does Nuedexta in some other form - like liquid or a small pill?

I can still swallow my pills (carefully), some times it takes me a few tries....all of my meds taste awful if I don't get them down quickly.
Something that I have heard of is mixing the meds with yogurt or something you can swallow.
Let us know how you do on the Nuedexta, I had a rough go adjusting to it. Can still only take one per day, after being on it for two months.

Try using a teaspoon of yoghurt, jam, apple sauce ... something a little thick that should get it down without too much back taste.

It was definitely easier once my husband got the peg in to give any medication without a thought of all that.
