I've always asked for liquid forms whenever my girls needed medication. It wasn't until recently that I started giving my then nine-year old pills to swallow, and we practiced with the mini M&Ms. Ask your pharmacist for a special cup that some find helpful. It has a little reservoir in which you put the pill, and fill the cup with liquid. When the child drinks from the reservoir, the pill should go down pretty easily. I haven't tried it (I haven't needed to, but our pediatrician did give us one), but it works wonderfully for a friend of mine.
