This is not about his ability TO take medication it is about him WANTING to take his medication. He has decided that he does not need to take his tablets. He is not allowed at school unless he is medicated, he is hurting me daily (yesterday he shoved me and now I cant move my shoulder or neck without pain), and he has not ability to regulate or listen when not medicated. I need a way to do this, 1 of his medications needs to be swallowed whole, both do actually as putting in it something will most likely lead to him not taking the entire dose, which is just as bad cause I cant medicate again if it runs out which is does when mixed with food. Talking to him about it doesn't work because he doesn't see the improvements, Missing school and having boring days at home doesn't help, Bribery doesn't work (his principal has offered him chupa chup every single day he's on time and takes his medicine, so far he never got a single one) this is beyond a joke. I no longer have anything else to do or suggest and no other services can help. Maybe mums can help?
