Don’t Crush Your MEDICATION
Did you know that crushing tablets, opening capsules or altering medication may have an adverse effect on how your medication works?
Or do you mix substances with your medication to help you swallow?
If you mix food substances such as yoghurt, fruit puree or jam with your medication, be aware that it may impact the efficacy, side effect profile and absorption of the medication.FIND OUT MORE >
When we came across your product at the Care Expo in Birmingham we were excited to see if it would help our residents.
We have trialled it on two residents who struggle to swallow their tablets and my Senior Carers report that it is fantastic. The residents swallowed their tablets straight away and both residents saved them 15-20 minutes each per medication round. When administering tablets for 21 people, saving this amount of time is wonderful, to enable all the residents to receive their medication in a timely manner.
We would definitely recommend this product!
Gloup makes such a difference when trying to swallow tablets. I have had two Spinal operations that left swallowing tablets a challenge, it took a while to get used to the tablets being coated as I usually move them around my mouth before being able to swallow and then they got stuck in my throat. Gloup has made such an amazing difference and it has a nice flavour, I highly recommend it!
This is a great product to aid dementia sufferers to take their medication. If they fail to swallow their tablets it causes great stress and puts them off taking any future tablets. This avoids this and makes the carers life so much easier.
Also great for swallowing prescription paracetamols which seem so much more difficult to swallow. My mother who is 80, found this no longer a problem when they were taken with gloup.
What a fantastic product! This is the predicament we were in, I have a resident with Dementia and she has swallowing difficulties and as a result she had been spitting out her medication. I had been back to the GP twice to ask for her medication to be provided in liquid form to be told that it was too expensive but he gave us permission to crush her medication. As you can imagine taking 5 tablets every morning as a crushed powder tasted horrible and she would spit it out just like the tablets. We had started to mix it with jam to make it more palatable but she was having none of it and we were concerned that she would be having 5 teaspoons of sugar every day!. Luckily a colleague and I went to the Care Show at the NEC and found Gloup on one of the stands, we tried it and it works!! After we ran out, we searched the internet and found that you stocked it and I ordered 5 tubes straight away. It’s great as we keep the tablets whole and the resident now receives her medication properly and is therefore a lot happier”
‘We are loving the new larger bottle with the dispensing pump. The staff have said that there is less wastage and easier to use as it can put it over each tablet a lot easier than the tubes’
My Son has autism and dyspraxia, he really struggles with tablets. He is 11 years old and is now prescribed with tablets as they are the cheaper option. We have been using Gloup and it has been great to work with as his tablets slide down with no complaints anymore. Would highly recommend it.
I normally struggle with non-coated tablets and used Gloup on cheap paracetamol. Swallowed perfectly, which would not occur with water.
- Disliked bitter tasting residue from tablets when swallowing with water.
- No residue on the tongue at all after using Gloup.
