I was in tears this morning after trying, once again to get him to swallow the capsule to no success. Sprinkling in OJ didn't work day one, yogurt day two (first the capsule than sprinkling) didn't work either. My DS regurgitated half of what he swallowed.
I'm concerned if this is really the best course after we both were crying. He has always had a thing with food texture and I was concerned before I even started done this route. It hardly seems worth all the stress it causes.
SOOO can anyone help??? Does it get easier? How do you stick to the plan? Any hints what to mix the med into? Or how to get him to swallow the capsule?
My tears are for my son, not my fustration. I love him so much and only want what is best, but I also don't want to tramutize him over getting medication into him. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
