i'm not sure what medication you can take to help but when my daddy was having small strokes it was hard for him to eat and drink because he was afraid he was going to choke and he was unable to tell us that at first so his sitter would cut up food into tiny pieces and let him pick it up with his fingers and we got him a tupper ware sippy cup and one of us would hold it giving him small sips until he was able to feel the liquid around his tongue and not choke when he did take meds they were chrushed up in applesauce or given in a liquid form whatever was easiest for my daddy. i hope this has answered your question.missy
