We've had the tamiflu as well and the pharmacy tech suggested a teaspoon of chocolate syrup with the powder from the capsule. It worked great, what kid doesn't like chocolate. It made giving it to him way easier!

Quoting Aurelia:

Hi I am a pharmacy tech. with walgreens Tamiflu is in suspension if not available the pharmacy is suppose to Compound it into liquid you might wanna try a walgreens. Let me know your response from them if not I would mix it in chocolate pudding for better taste but it still wont be great..



Hi i asked them for a liquid form when i went to get it from the pharmacy and there reply was that's all they do.. When i read the leaflet inside it said the same as you did so i rang them again and there reply was the capsul's is all they have avalible to them at this time. We only live in a small town but i intend to ring around and see if anone else can do this for me if i don't have any luck with him today...   thankyou for your help x

Sara-lou, I have never tried to get a capsule into my little boy, but maybe if you put it in something sweet, and a little bit naughty, like jam perhaps he will give that a try. Good luck and I hope he gets better soon!!
