      shirley, what a great idea!   i know i have a problem swallowing pills and capsules are so much easier for me to swallow, plus, if you can reduce the number of swallows (eg; several pills in one capsule), all the better.  thank you so much for sharing this info.

      Between prescriptions and supplements Joe (husband) takes 29 a day total.  Seniment and Mirapex 4 times a day.  Have found it is easier to put the small pills in a capsule. I can put 4 out of 9 of his 8 a.m. pills in a capsule.  I do have cut 1 in half for it to fit.  It makes it so much easier.  I got a capsule maker 00 size from http://www.capsuleconnection.com.  Makes 24 at a time.  Works real well for the 4 times a day schedule.  There is another brand that will do a hundred at a time.  I get the empty capsules from Amazon but they are also available at health food stores.

      I forgot to say “do NOT cut timed release meds in half”.  If the pill has a line on it on one side you can safely cut it.  If in doubt ask pharmacist.

      Great idea. I haaate taking pills and I think if I had to take more than a couple at once I would start to gag. Thanks for sharing, Shirley.
