WARNINGS: Helpful Hints:
1.) Wash with hot soapy water and rinse thoroughly after every use, especially when used with dairy products. Not Dishwasher Safe
2.) For children old enough to use a straw, help them become familiar with using the MediStraw by letting them watch you use it on numerous occasions with your favorite beverage without taking pills. Let them do the same to become accustomed with its use.
3.) Take only one pill at a time.
4.) When using gel coated pills or capsules, be aware that they may stick to the inside of the MediStraw if it has been moistened by a previous use (as when taking numerous pills). This can be easily prevented by applying a very small amount of cooking oil, olive oil, butter, etc. to the tip of the index finger and rolling the pill between the finger and thumb, coating the pill.
