I would spend hours in the kitchen with a glass of water in front of me trying to keep medicine down. My parents tried everything!
- Crushing ( you are not supposed to do this but at the time we were..)
- Making a shake (the shake would taste horrible & just made it worse! Can you imagine drinking a whole shake with an overwhelming medicine taste? )
- Drink & swallow FAST! ( I felt like I would choke every time & spit it up)
At some point I remember having to tell my doctors before they write up my script to have the pills be crushed & made into a liquid form in pharmacy! * I could see this working for some people* for me the taste was a factor & I remember getting even sicker. I'd rather not get into details. It's for the best, believe me! haha
I do have a strategy now that i'm older & have had time to work on it. My strategy involves having a small amount of food ( I'm sure there is medication where you shouldn't be eating , I haven't run into that problem yet!). Anyways you chew the food LIKE USUAL & before you swallow hide the pill inside what you are about to swallow. This sounds kind of gross writing this, but it's absolutely helped me!
