How do I get my child to take his medicine? He's very stubborn.

Who is the parent! Children need to understand why. But it could also be the taste. Compounding pharmacies can make virutally all medicines palitable. Remember, taking medicine makes children feel different and reminds them something is wrong, partuclarly with chronic issues. I have this problem with adolescents coming with parents who don't take their medications regularly. Some with serious illnesses.
