How old is your son? I assume that this is a liquid formulation

Reply to Family Physician's Post: He is over 3 1/2 years old. Right now I have the medicine sitting in chocolate milk with chocolate syrup and I can even taste it. I am going to mix the chocolate milk and make him a milk shake. I still would love to know an eaiser way to get this down him. Yes it is a liquid form. Thank you for your help.

The flavors that I have found most useful to mask bad tasting medicine - GRAPE (if you have grape jelly) or peanut butter. Bannana is another fairly good bet.

Reply to Family Physician's Post: He is not buying any of the chocolate milk shake. I did a Banana... I think I will wait and see. Thank you for your reply. I would like a refund

It will be proper if you wait to see if any of Family Physician's suggestions help before requesting a refund.

I am sending this as an Information Request, so you can see it without paying. This is not an answer, so do not pay for it. You pay only for answers.
