Pill Necklace

The better to swallow them with, my dear

Old and sick folks often have a lot of capsules to gulp down, a process that can be both arduous and time consuming. If each capsule had a built-in snap on each end, the medicine and vitamins could be snapped together into an open pill necklace that would help pull itself down the gullet, siphon style.

       I'm sure I've anno'd this before...   

       [bun] This reminds me of a sweet that there used to be... [linky] A little like Refreshers, but on an elasticated string, which were worn around the neck.   

       They could be Colour and Flavour coated to help ensure the correct dosage.
