Taking the “Yuck” out of Medicine

We know that children can present several challenges when it comes to taking their medications. Some children may resist taking a liquid medicine due to the taste, other children may have difficulty swallowing pills, and others may have special needs.

Also, many medications aren’t labeled for children. If a medication isn’t approved for use in infants and children, it typically is not available in a suitable pediatric dosage form.

With all of these challenges and more, finding an outside-the-box solution can sometimes be the difference between a child actually taking their medication or not taking it all.
