Irish_Mom, I can't put pills in my mouth dry either, especially when they're non-coated ones, but I usually fill my mouth with juice or something, tilt my head back and toss the pill in and swallow, and that usually helps.
BUT some pills taste terrible no matter what, and I was thinking one day about
how when I feed my dog medicine, I coat it in peanut butter and she swallows them right down. Soo I tried it myself and it works GREAT! You can't taste the horrible pill at all and it helps it go right down :) Just make sure you have it really covered.
