Whether you are NPO (nothing per oral, or nothing by mouth), or you just have a super-sensitive gag reflex, you clearly cannot take pills for any reason. This can be very frustrating, especially when you desperately need pain relief, and/or your doctor has prescribed pain relief medication after surgery and you cannot swallow pills. In this instance, you can try these alternatives. Request them from your doctor, as it may be difficult to get them with your insurance and a valid medical reason for not taking medication in pill form.
