That's odd. But I read your responses to GB and if the taste is what's making you gag, why not cut it in half, put peanut butter or bread around them and swallow them with milk?
I give my dog pills like that each morning for his thyroid, and it works like magic. Of course he doesn't have the milk, just gobbles up the bread or peanut butter and bread. You can wrap up each half in a small piece of bread (with peanut butter if you like, or jelly, etc) and the taste won't bother you.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
