    Were you told this problem is all in your head?

    As founder of Pilldown™, I got to the point where I had to close my eyes and cover my face with my hands, so I could focus on getting the pill down my throat. Most of the time it ended up being spit out into the sink, so call me CRAZY.

    What techniques have you tried in the past to help you swallow pills, but has failed?

    Some of us have tried drinking water with our head tilted a certain way (No, not just for hiccups)? Spoon of peanut butter? Sippy cup?

Concerns

How long does Pilldown last?

Pilldown likes cool, dry, dark places. It will last for months in its sealed packette, not in the back of your pant’s pocket or glove compartment. Let’s not leave it for years like spices in the back of your mother’s pantry.

Can I use Pilldown for things other than pills?

Please do not surprise your little brother with something wrapped in Pilldown that is not a pill. Pilldown is named for that reason.

Is there a guarantee that Pilldown will work?

Do unicorns exist? Like they say, the only absolute is death and taxes. But, Pilldown in our opinion is the best choice. Swallow pills in the most delightful way!
