Instructables user kazmataz suggests that buttering up a difficult pill or two can make all the difference when you’re having trouble getting it down. To put this to the test, I buttered up and took these horrible calcium-magnesium supplements I should never have purchased. They are huge and have no coating because they’re vegan (thanks a lot, vegans), so the butter made quite the difference. I’m not sure I’d want to regularly lube up my pills with fat, but it’s nice to know it’s an option when a certain medicine or vitamin is too huge and dry to go down on its own.
