Flavour for liquid medications

Does your child refuse to swallow her medication? Liquid medications often taste bad, which makes it difficult to get kids to take them. Talk to your pharmacist, who can give you tips to make it easier for you to give your child a medication and ensure the treatment is effective.

For example, depending on your child’s age, you can dip the tip of the syringe in a sweet food or inject the medication into the cheek instead of onto the tongue. If your pharmacist provides this service, a flavour that your child likes can be added to the medication (if compatible).

Consult your pharmacist, who is always here to help keep you and your child healthy (lien à la section « Santé du bébé »).
