A spoonful of sugar? Better ways to make the medicine go down.


“If it tastes bad it must be good for you”, is a saying we all heard as children, usually around the time the adults in our life were trying to convince us to take a particularly nasty cough syrup.

While the saying might ring true in many cases (kale comes to mind), it doesn’t have to be true for today’s modern medications.

For children who are particularly adverse to the taste of their medication, National Compounding Chemist, can make up their medication, exactly as it comes from the manufacturer, but in a flavour that will really help the medicine go down. What kid doesn’t love bubblegum?
