  • mix it in his favorite flavored drink but start off very little so he can get that much in his body then when he asks for more drink you can filler up ;)

  • Check with your pharmacy on this particular drug before mixing it with anything, I always check with each drug to see if it can be mixed. Also, I have my son hold his nose and swallow really quick when he has to take nasty meds... then follow right up with a drink of something good! HTH.
