For those of you whose little one can not swallow a pill. How do you get them to take it? My daughter is on Focalin and she can not swallow pills yet. I was told to put it in some apple sauce but my DD does not like it like absolutely hates it.....I have tried putting it in a medicine cup with some juice in it but it just sinks to the bottom.....I need some advice please!!!!!

When my son was taking a powder suppliment, I used to put it in a little cup of yogurt. It might help hide the taste better than applesauce. Or try anything that she loves and don't tell her you put it in there and see if she can really notice the taste or if she just pretends too because she knows it in there.
