My almost 2 year old was today diagnosed with a chest infection, and has been prescribed antibioitics and pink dissolvable steriod tablets. My other 2 children have asthma, and the doctor now thinks that my daugther has aswell. I dissolved the 3 tablets in a small amount of water. She refused to drink the water. I eventually managed to get the water into her, by using a syringe, squirting it bit by bit into her mouth.
This took ages and was not very nice for either of us as I had to hold her down. Does anyone have any tips about how to get the water into her easier? She doesn't drink fruit juices so I wasn't able to disguise the taste!

Try a small amount at a time in the side of her mouth giving a drink in between, i'm like you and dread each time as I have to hold her down which is upsetting. Good luck and I hope she's better soon. I dissolve them in the smallest amount of water possible and give them via a straw however, my daughter was 4 when she first had them , with a drink on standby and a treat to take the taste away, apparently they taste disgusting.
Chocolate works a treat in our house as this is never allowed in the morning. Has your child got a favourite toy? If so they could also have their medicine at the same time, apart from that I would try syringing to one side of the mouth and stroking their throat in theory they will then swallow.
In the end we managed to get her to take it by adding fruit juice to the dissolved tablets. She then sipped the medicine off, bit by bit, and with a lot of encouragement. Mid-August the coughing returned and it hasn't stopped. She has had her clenil Health tools and topics Menu Have an account? Log in Health tools. Log in Sign up.
