The doctor changed my DD medication the other day, she was taking adderall and it was capsule so i could break it apart and sprinkle it on some apple sauce, the new medication is Ritalin and it is a whole pill which can not be chewed broken up or crushed. My DD does not know how to swallow a pill and i still have not been able to get her to take the medication. If anyone has any tips on how i can get her to swallow this medication I would love to know cause I have no idea how to get her to swallow it.....

I didn't learn to swallow pills until HS, so hopefully my suggestion will work. My mom would always put it in jelly or something that would slide down easily. It may take some practice.

A spoon full Chocolate pudding. It also takes away any bitter flavor.

honestly my kids were swallowing pills early but I can't remember for the life of me how they learned or how I taught them.
