in pill form and i cannot get these pills down at all and i was wondering if there was any other forms of the meds and also what could happen if i just dont take them at all?
If you dont take them at all then the infected pockets (diverticuli) in your intestines can perforate sending infection all through your abdomen which can cause peritonitis and death. These drugs can be crushed as long as your Cipro isnt a Cipro XR. You can call and confirm with your pharmacist to be sure. Swallowing pills is mind over matter. If you can swallow a mouthful of food, you can swallow a pill. Place the pill far back on your tongue, have water available immediately to take a sip, tilt your head back quickly so the pill slides to the very back of your throat and swallow quickly. Dont over think it. It is your mind telling you that you cant swallow it. Remember that the pill is no larger than a mouthful of food, in fact it is much smaller. If you can swallow food, you can swallow pills.
