My 10 year old son has ADD - and last year we struggled with him to take the medicine because he can't swallow pills. Finally found a medicine he can chew, and now he refuses to take it because it tastes bad. I've told him to chew it and then take a bite of something that he is eating, cereal, bread, whatever. He stills refuses to take it. We know what it does for him, because we saw such an improvement in him in school after he took the medicine. But then summer came and we didn't push it on him. Now that school is starting up again, he is refusing to take it and I am not going through what we went through last year. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what we can do to get my child to take this medicine? Thanks in advance.
