Arkray launches new swallowing aid
Assure Slide is a new swallowing aid from Arkray for people who have difficulty swallowing tablets and capsules. Assure Slide is a thick, smooth gel that helps tablets and capsules pass smoothly through the esophagus by moistening the mucous membranes in the mouth and throat cavity. The stomach breaks down substance immediately and has no effect on the absorption rate at the medication. Assure Slide comes in two options: Assure Slide Zero, which sugar-free and raspberry flavored, and Assure Slide Zero and Slide Forte, which is vanilla flavored and extremely thick for people with more acute swallowing difficulties.
