Does your child/children know the medicine they take? Our daughter Lindsey knows not so much the names but what they look like and has a hard time if changed.if the Dr tells her that she is getting new or changing med she does okay with but if it looks different but the something she becomes upset saying that's not the right one,

My only one on meds is 3. He knows when we do them and which ones. He sometimes gets upset if they put him on an antibiotic or something and it ends. He usually gets over it in a couple of days.

Nope.  My son is 5 but functions at the level of a 12-18 month old so he doesn't understand all the meds he takes.  Plus they go through his g-tube anyway.

My son knows what most meds are for but he can't tell the difference between them all as they are all liquid and a lot of them are clear so you can't decipher (except by smell which I can do).

i always get the meds out and give to them , it scares me to think of mine doing their own , but they would know it if they saw it

I don't think she does. She can tell me when it is time for her medication.
