"Mommy, there's nuckies in my juice".
(inspecting glass) "I don't see any nuckies, it's okay."
"No, there's nuckies in my juice".
(crap- that's the med.) "Here honey, we'll put some more juice in there."
"No! (pours juice into sink) I want new juice."
Crap, crap, crap. "Okay, you can have new juice". (preparing syringe for new dose to go with new juice)
Ugh. He can taste the meds in his juice. Risperdal is the most disgusting tasting med there is out there. There is no way to disguise the nastiness of this vile stuff. I've been pretty lucky so far, the closest Jaysen's come to complaining, is shooting me an inquisitive look, which I return with a look of ignorance, and all has been fine. But now what?!? Forget about disguising it in another food, because if it won't go in a cheese-it, I'm pretty much screwed.
Risperdal also comes in an "M-tab" which is a pain in the butt. He won't take any form of medicine, so it has to be dissolved and put in his juice again. That's when I just switched to the liquid. You can't always have hot water available to dissolve the M-tab, and if it's dissolved in cold liquid, you can see the granules floating on the top, which is of course, unacceptable.
However, the M-tab is peppermint flavored. I should say, it's flavored with peppermint. Which just makes for a vile, nasty, disgusting, stomach-wrenching, pseudo-pepperminty medicine. A bouquet of gasoline and grain alcohol, with peppermint undertones. Any way you take it, the shit is a nasty assault to the taste buds.
I'll have to talk to the psychiatrist on Friday, and let her know that he's onto the scheme, and we may have to go back to the M-tabs, or we're going to have to find something else. Damn.
