Before Pill Glide, I would cut my pills into little pieces to help with getting them down. Pill Glide has allowed me to swallow quickly and easily.
Columbia, MD (Vocus/PRWEB) November 16, 2010
Millions of people around the world have difficulty swallowing their medications, vitamins and health supplements. Pill Glide, from FLAVORx, addresses this problem by helping people swallow the tablets and capsules they so often struggle to take.
Pill Glide was developed by a pharmacist looking for a solution to help patients who'd complained about trouble swallowing medications. It turns out this is a common problem for many individuals, including:
- Parents struggling to transition their children from swallowing liquid medicine to tablets;
- Healthy adults taking supplements with an unpleasant smell and bad taste;
- Sufferers of pill anxiety, an unwillingness to take pills due to fear of choking;
- Cancer patients, stroke victims, and their caregivers, looking for ways to deal with the difficulty of swallowing pills;
- Older adults, taking multiple medications daily, seeking a break from the hassle of swallowing so many pills; and the list goes on.
"I have difficulty swallowing pills," says Linda Sharp, one of many satisfied customers. "Before Pill Glide, I would cut my pills into little pieces to help with getting them down. Pill Glide has allowed me to swallow quickly and easily." Linda's experience taking pills and tablets before using Pill Glide is not unique. In fact, polling data reveals that a full 40% of adults have had difficulty swallowing medications at some point in their lives. (Harris Interactive, 2004).
With Pill Glide, FLAVORx is tackling this serious issue head on. "Taking what we've learned from our 14 years of experience in the pediatric prescription flavoring world, and recognizing the tremendous need for a product that will help people of all ages take their tablets and capsules, we're confident Pill Glide can improve the quality-of-life for so many people," said Stuart Amos, CEO & President of FLAVORx Inc.
