View Full Version : Afraid of swallowing pills, is Daytrana for me?

I hate taking pills. I can deal with crushing them up and putting them in applesauce, but I have to do that three times a day, and that is a pain. But you absolutely can't crush XR capsules, so I haven't been able to take those.

I'm 18 years old and in college.

A patch sounds so much easier to deal with. I used to be involved in theatre, so I feel like I could deal with the patch skin problems, it can't be as bad as the tape used to stick microphones to the sensitive skin on the neck...

I was doing so well with the pills I could crush, it was just inconvienient. Do the patches work as well as dex?

I strongly urge you to start getting used to swallowing them now. I couldn't swallow pills until I was I think 16 or so. At that time I had to take some antibiotics that did not have a non-pill form, so I had to learn on the spot and it was horrible.
