I am completely unable to swallow whole pills. Never been able to overcome the gag reflex.
But I am in a lot of pain and the doctor prescribed over the counter pain medication such as Advil.
I have ibuprofen and Advil pills. I know I remember a nurse at emerge telling me I could chew "Advil" or some other big name over the counter pain medication that she brought me (it was not a chewable pill, and it's name started with "A").
So my question is. Is there any adult over the counter medication that you can confirm is safe to chew? I would highly prefer the answer to include normal medical and not some super expensive chewable drug meant for my sort of case.
