We have tried EVERYTHING to get her liquid medicine in her... putting it in applesauce or pudding, she won't eat it... putting it in her sippy cuo ir mixing it with a drink, she won't drink it... just holding her down was working for a while, but now she just sits with it in her mouth til it just runs out. Blowing in her face won't make her swallow either. They are VERY important meds (some for seizures) so I can't just not give them. It's a 2-hour battle every night (doing it as I type, actually) and it reduces me to tears nearly every time.

Have you tried a syringe? My DD gets medicine everyday as well, and we just shoot it down her throat quicklywith a syringe. Maybe offer a sticker on a sticker chart every time she takes it?? My DD has been taking meds since 1 week of age, so she's alwasy been used to it.
