    Hi there, i found in WR dictionary :
    "to swallow a bitter pill" : "avaler la pilule"
    Maybe you could provide some context ?
    Hope this is helpful

    Thank you Elioush,

    Yes certainly, I'll attempt to create a context.

    The government had to put draconian measures in place, in order to curtail flight of capital and total ban on imports.
    The nataion had to "swallow the bitter pill", but the measures proved effective to stream-line the economy and bring the GDP in line.

    merci
