Hey everyone! I was wondering if anyone has any good ideas as to how to get my 7 year old son to swallow his medication. He was just perscribed Vyvanse yesterday and he is having a VERY difficult time trying to get it to go down. I bought tic tacs yesterday and we tried to practice last night, since this is the first time he has been required to swallow anything, but were not successful. I also tried putting the tic tac on a spoon of applesauce and that did not work either. I tired having him sip through a straw to force the tic tac back, but it seems that his tougue is getting in the way everytime!! He can't figure out how to lay it flat in his mouth. This morning when he actually had to take the pill I ended up pushing it all the way back with my finger and he gagged quite dramatically, but it went down... I REALLY want him to be able to do it on his own, but just don't know what else to try. Any insight would be GREATLY appreciated!! On a more positive note... I did notice for the first time EVER that he did something I asked him to do the first time I asked!!!
