Daily Word Prompt: Swallow

Have you ever wondered what exactly is in the pill you’re swallowing?

What chemical is used for that easy-to-swallow coating? What is mixed with ibuprofen or acetaminophen that we can’t see? What are those chemicals doing to my stomach, my liver, my kidneys, my intestines? If i am taking Motrin for a headache or and ear ache, how does it know to only treat that? I’m sure a pill doesn’t, so what else is it doing?

Just some questions to think of before you just swallow that painkiller instead of actually treating the source or the real issue.
