Reply To: Child refusing meds


I don’t know what kind of medicine she is on but Vyvanse has a chewable that just hit the market in the spring time. That has been our saving grace since we were opening up the capsules and mixing it with a little bit of milk and then battling to drink the milk. (Had to stay away from mixing with juice due to poorer absorption into the body.)

I’ve also heard of people putting them into Gusher fruit snacks and having the child swallow them. My son hasn’t been able to swallow M&M’s so we never tried that option. Maybe a better solution would be mixing the contents of the capsule with peanut butter and spreading over toast.
