  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for swallowing difficulty (dysphagia))
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: Dysphagia prevents me from consuming foods that have solids and thin liquids (e.g., chicken noodle soup). Moderately thick sauces are okay (e.g., ketchup). I also avoid spicy foods (which I love) and alcohol because they hurt so bad if they go down the wrong pipe. I cannot converse while eating; I must concentrate on swallowing. Thank the Lord I still cough when something goes the wrong way.
