These tablets are small and slick, some how they side out of my weekly pill container. I often find them here and there. They are hard to pick up because of their size and slickness. It looks like for the price we pay you could make them a little larger and easier to handle.
I personally like the small size of the tablets, as I can't swallow large pills well. You might try the latex gloves the other poster mentioned. Or lightly moisten the tip of your finger, to try picking up the tablet that way. Place it on your tongue and drink fluid to swallow the tablet as quickly as possible, so the tablet doesn't begin to 'melt' away from the moisture. Good luck.
I agree with you they often slip in between my fingers & because I can't even feel them I don't realize they've slipped through & fell onto my hardwood brown floors & that's it, they're never to be seen again until I sweep because they blend right in. I've definitely lost quite a few & I am extremely careful with how I take it now, but I agree that it's a flawed size & shape.
