My DS has a horrible cough that is viral and one that has been hanging around for 3 weeks.  His doc said it just has to run it's course, but he was coughing horribly.  Doc said get him some Delsym.  Well, I could only find it in liquid and it is expensive!  So, I got it and DS will absolutely NOT take it that way!  A co-worker asked me if I had tried the empty capsules!  I found them in the organic foods section of our local grocery store (and you can also get them on Amazon in various sizes) and I just used a liquid med syringe to fill them and it works PERFECTLY!  DS can swallow pills no problem!!  I am thinking of so many other things we can do this with!!  Ground meat, etc.  LOL  I was in tears I was so happy!!  MIRACLE!!!  :-D

 I am so happy for you! I hate situations like you were facing with your son. It does not make me a happy camper either!
