(discovered because all of the above was happening to me)
mix the meds in chocolate syrup and then pour the syrup on top of ice-cream. Once they figure this out, switch ice-cream flavors. Mint worked well.
Mix straight into lime sherbet!
Make a chocolate milk shake
Mix it into a small root beer float
Notice the ice cream trend :) Also try washing it down with soda because the carbonation cuts out all other flavors.
Also there is now bubble gum flavored Tylenol and ibuprofen - that stuff is FANTASTIC!!!!!
We put the desired amount of pain medication in the squeegee thing and then topped it off with the bubble gum flavored ammoxicilian. and that worked a couple of times.
Also the chewable bubble gum flavored Tylenol worked once.
Side note, please don't judge me, desperate times call for desperate measures. And having your childs tonsils and adenoids taken out and tubes put in are considered desperation in my book.
AND WHEN YOU MIX PAIN MEDS WITH ICE-CREAM IT COUNTS AS EATING!!!!! BONUS!
ps, i have a brand new huge amazement by mothers of chronically ill children. I cannot image.
