Without knowing the size of the vitamins, whether you have trouble swallowing other types of tablets or capsules, etc., it's hard to say. I can, however, share my experience with you and hope it is helpful.
As a general rule, I don't have any problems swallowing small to medium-sized tablets. But natural multi-vitamins tend to come in larger capsules and I have a terrible time with them. They tend to turn sideways in my throat and get stuck. After that happens a couple of times, I get apprehensive and my throat tightens up even more.
A couple of tricks I've learned:
• When you're trying to swallow a capsule, tilt your head forward. Most of us tend to throw our heads back, which actually causes the throat to tighten. Tilting your head forward helps it to open more and makes it easier to swallow.
• I try to position the capsule towards the back of my tongue so it is lengthwise and aimed at my throat.
• I keep a cup of warm liquid – not too hot – nearby so if the capsule does turn sideways in my throat, I can drink the warm liquid, which seems to help it slide down.
