I have to give a 3 year old meds for adhd and anxiety hes not able to understand how to swallow pills. I have no choice but to do liquids, or put in a favorite drink. You can also try ice cream to disguise it. It sounds horrible but if it works great! You can also start small. Offer just a small part of the pill and offer a drink to instantly wash it down. Slowly increase size. If not I agree patches etc are other options.
