Offer a reward
Kids love treats – but who doesn’t? Perhaps, the best way to convince them to take their meds is to give them a little bribery. Promise them a special something if they can take their medications and your problem is solved. They probably wouldn’t think about poking a hole on your pockets so you should be fine with giving them a piece of candy or a sticker in exchange of ensuring their health.
Most kids can’t swallow regular-sized tablets. While breaking the pill to make it easy enough for a child to swallow is the traditional way of solving the problem, doctors argue that there’s a big chance the right dose will not be taken. Pharmacists can help make tablets smaller without breaking or crushing it through compounding the dose into a smaller form for easier swallow.
Hiding medicines into their favourite treats is also an effective way of making them take their meds without knowing. However, the surer way of making them take their medications secretly while making sure that they are getting the exact dose they need is for a compounding pharmacist to customize the drug and turn it into child-favourite treats, like lollipops and chewable.
The biggest reason for kids loathing their meds is the bad flavour and smell. It doesn’t matter if it’s a solid or liquid medication, if they can’t handle the taste, they will just end up vomiting it. Our skilled compounding Pharmacists at Lynn Oaks Compounding Pharmacy, can easily customize the medication and give it a flavourful twist. By adding tasty flavour to their meds, making them take their medications can never get any easier.
