Kid will never trust a Pharmacist again.
My kid, like most kids, doesn't like medicine. He ESPECIALLY doesn't like liquid medicine. When I buy Tylenol or cold medicine I buy chewable or the kind that dissolves on your tongue. Liquids make Kid gag.
Now, he doesn't like medicine but he's usually good about taking it. I mean, he complains (Duh) but he eventually takes it because he has too.
Kid's been complaining about ear pain for a couple days and I assumed an ear infection. I finally got him an appointment yesterday.
We were right. Poor thing has an ear infection. The Doctor said "I'm going to get you something that tastes good."
Doctor doesn't know my kid very well.
We sat and waited at the pharmacy. When they called kids name, we went to the counter so the pharmacist could explain the dosing. The first thing Kid asked "Can I chew it?"
Nope. It's liquid. The Pharmacist ASSURED him that it tastes good. Most kids love it. The lady next to him agreed. "It's one of the few that does but it tastes good."
Kid wasn't convinced.
At home I opened it and called Kid to come take his medicine. We sniffed it. Seemed OK. I repeated to Kid that the Pharmacist said it tasted good.
Kid tasted it.
Drink water! Drink water!
GAG! COUGH! GAG!
It was ONE teaspoon, people. One teaspoon.
