Go back and ask if you can have one with sugar. I had to do this when my 2 year old had infected chicken pox. It was so traumatic that she was yelling if I even went into the kitchen let alone came at her with a spoon of the stuff and it did taste EVIL - with a good 5 minute after taste too!

I think you can, dd has to take lots of vile medicines on a daily basis including penicillin and before she was discharged, the nurses would mix the revolting ones with sugar before administering them to her.

I have been given sugar free penicillin medicine for 5yr old dd who has tonsillitis. It's revolting. Can I add a bit of sugar so it's not quite so bad. Felt like crying myself when I tried it!
