My 30 months son throw up his antibiotics when given

Patient

Q: My 30 months son throw up his antibiotics when given orally. Can I mix the antibiotics with honey or what are the alternative ways I may use to ensure he is taking it

Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

Very common problems, the toddlers throw up the antibiotic when given orally.
Yes, this is the best way to add with honey or whatever the child likes and see there will be no vomiting.
Please carry on.
There are no negative reports till now about mixing such things together.
