How To Deal With Children Who Cannot Take Medicine?
Morning, my child from childhood until now has been 4 years can not take medicine. If sick, given medicine or syrup directly vomited. How to persuade children to be able to take medicine? thanks.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Actually everyone who can eat and drink normally, can definitely take medicine. Because there is no specific way to take medicine. Some people may find it difficult to take pills, even though they are smaller than the food we consume in general, but basically they can. Moreover, syrup medicine in its own form is liquid and should be taken by mouth.
What we want to say is that it's very likely that your child won't be able to, but won't. Not wanting it could have come from his bad experiences in the past when trying drugs that he didn't like, or getting an understanding that the drug was something bad, whether it was from something that was seen or read.
So what we can do is be smart enough to persuade him. Most syrup medicines now taste adapted to a child's taste so it shouldn't bother him. If it works, praise him and reward him in the form of something he likes if he wants to fight his fears. For drugs that take the form of a pill, you can hide it behind food such as bananas or sponge cakes. You can also pretend to take medicine to show him that the medicine is not bad. So, hopefully answering your question.
