Customer Question

My 5 year old autistic son has pneumonia and has been prescribe e-mycin 400mg suspension . I can not disguise the horrible taste in anything and can not get him to take it. Is there an alternative to this that tastes better or is more easily disguised in his favourite drink ? Thank you

Hi, thanks for the question. An alternative would have been Azithromycin suspension, the taste is alot better. Another option is to check and see if your pharmacy offers flavor enhancements on liquid drugs. That can make a big difference in the taste.
