Taking medicine

by Krystina

We are in the process of getting SPD diagnosed. Dd has an evaluation next week w/ an OT and starts developmental preschool in a few weeks as well. I can't get her to take any meds though for anything. If I start to get it in her she spits it back out or scrapes her tongue off w/ her hands and nearly gags from it. She is 3 and I've tried both chewables and liquids.

I've not tried the dissolving strips because I don't like the slimy feel from ones I've tried so I know she wouldn't tolerate them. I also struggle w/ her albuterol inhaler because she has to use a mask w/ it because of her age. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas I would really appreciate it. Thanks
