I have a 5 yr. old boy with an infection from a toothache. The dentist prescribed Pencillin VK 250mg/5ml suspension. The problem is that my son hates the taste of it and refuses to take the medicine. Can this be mixed with a drink (i.e. milk, juice, etc...) and still maintain it's effectiveness?Please let me know as soon as possible. Thank you.
Masking taste of penicillin
i would just eat something right after until the taste goes away. im 17 and i cant stand the taste so i just hold my nose, take the penicillin (holding your nose stops from tasting it). Immediately eat something while still holding your nose then take your hand away and keep eating. Trust me, it helps.
