He won't take it. I tried hiding it in his food but he's too smart for that.

You dont say how old he is. Can u talk to him about it? discuss why he takes it & how he needs it to get him rewards for his positive behaviour etc....
You have my sympathy as I went through years of this with my oldest (now 21) she had stages of refusing meds. Psychiatrists told me I couldn't force feed them as was against there human rights but trust me i went through everyway possible, including blackmail at various times to get my daughter to take hers.

Good luck x
