My daughter is 6 and she takes medication for her adhd. Luckily we’ve been successful with her medicine, HOWEVER, getting her to actually take the medicine is another story. She’s not able to swallow pills yet so I mix it on a spoon with yogurt. The yogurt is what she thinks is the best to eat with the medicine. It takes me several minutes just to get her to hold the spoon. Then anywhere from 5-10+ minutes to get her to lick the medicine off the spoon. She’ll move the spoon around in the air trying to get it to fall off or, even worse, put the spoon in her mouth and start to close her mouth then open right away and pull the spoon out all while I’m sitting next to her begging her to take it. When she finally does lick it off the spoon she spends at least another 5-10 minutes with the medicine just in her mouth and not swallowing it. I feel like it is the most torturous situation. I know the medicine is gross and I’ve offered everything I can think of to help her take it quickly. This is how we start our mornings every day and by the time she finally swallows the medicine I’m either in tears or crazy frustrated. Not to mention, like today when she yanked the spoon from me and the medicine went flying off the spoon and all over a cabinet door. Or, when it’s in her mouth and something happens and she practically chokes on it and a lot of it comes out. Then I can’t figure out how much she’s consumed. I’m desperate for any suggestions to mix it in and how to get her to take it quickly. After the difficulty from this morning with her I had to take away her favorite toys and send her to her room.
