My kid has to take a medication that only comes in a capsule.. I cant open it and mix it with her food because its time released:-( I want her to take it for a week just so I can see how it makes her feel, but we have already gone thru 7pills in 2 days.... Pharmaceuticals need to come up with a kid friendly way this is horrible for a 6year old..

I used to practice swallowing M-n-M's and raisins when I was little and had to learn how to swallow pills.

I had my kids take water into their mouths, then tilt head back, drop pill, and swallow big, followed by a full 6-8 oz of water chaser.

Its not hard to train kids to take pills, and its a skill they need to learn for the rest of their lives.
