I guess I am odd man out here. I couldn't put it in on my side or stomach, so i actually do it standing up. Very easy and I can reach properly. Then I just go lie down. I never seem to have any trouble retaining it either. I just insert, squeeze the meds in, and then go upstairs to bed and sleep for the night. Am I perhaps not getting the meds far enough in to make it stay? What if i walk around on my hands a bit before bed? (obviously the last question is a joke ;))
