Nope. Neither one. I have to use liquid meds for them. And even then I have to use a syringe and mix it with juice and stagger them out over the day and evening.

No but I am waiting for the day she can because getting liquid meds in is a nightmare. The poor kid has thrown up more times than I can count trying to take medicine :(

No, I hide them in his food, liquid medicine almost always makes him throw up, so it works pretty well now.

No. My son is 9.5 and he cannot swallow them.
