Med-Easy™ eases the passage of medicines through the oesophagus into the stomach. It does so by wrapping around the medication which means instead of resting on the surface of the tongue, the medication is suspended in the liquid. As the patient swallows, the external edges of the liquid flow faster than the centre, allowing the tablet and Med-Easy™ to flow freely down into the oesophagus.
