How do you get your LOs to take medicine?

I have to bribe Sam with M&Ms. Last fall he was on so much at one time, I was bribing him with M&Ms for one med, Reese pb cubs for another, and Coke for another.

He's pretty good now about just taking his allergy med or something like Tylenol.

He got an Augmentin Rx today, so I'm bribing with mini Milky Ways.

The following things have worked:
mix it with peanut butter
put it in the syringe, then pull some chocolate syrup into the syringe. The kids get a taste of the chocolate first. If you are really creative you can get some chocolate in the front and back of the syringe, so it has a slighly chocolate after taste.
mix it with chocolate pudding

Some things just dont come in good flavors lol. I feel ad because my son has to take things for his special needs, that are SO gross I cant even stand the smell of them. Over time he's gotten use to the flavor though

So far he hasn't had to take anything that he didn't like. In fact he likes the taste so much he asks for more.
