I have a two year old little princess and she's been put on antibiotics (flucloxacillin) but refuses to take it to the point where she is in a screaming fit on the floor I've tried mixing it with a yogurt but you can still taste it as it has a horrible taste to it. I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on what I could try. Thanks

Buy needless syringes and inject the medicine in the back of her mout. Close her mouth and gently pinch her nose closed for two seconds until she swallows.

Also havd a drink of water or juice for her to take a swallow as soon as the medicine has been taken to get rid of the bitter taste.

Speed and no fuss, makes taking medicine much easier.

Good luck.

Try Tesco/Asda pharmacy counteror Boots for syringes.
