The Endless Battles Over Getting Kids to Take Their Medicine, May Soon be a Thing of the Past for Moms & Dads

From tears to tantrums, getting kids to take medicine is not easy. They just don’t like swallowing those large, bad tasting pills, and giving them liquid medicines doesn’t always work out either – it’s the wrong dose, it tastes bad, your child spits out half of it. It’s a stressful situation and one that is all too common for moms and dads. All they want is a way to give their kids the medicines they need, without the stress that comes with taking those hard-to-swallow pills. 

There is an answer to those wishes … MEDCOAT®. “My 9-year-old daughter was prescribed a very awful tasting, yet direly necessary prescription. MEDCOAT® was an answer to our prayer. The strawberry coating completely covered the foul taste, so she could calmly attempt to swallow the pill without tasting it,” said one mom & MEDCOAT® customer.

“We received the samples and this has been a lifesaver for my 8-year-old daughter who was having a lot of trouble swallowing her meds,” one mother said. “They are truly a game-changer. Mornings that were filled with anxiety and crying have become so easy and she looks forward to taking her meds!”

This amazing pill coating is revolutionizing the way kids swallow pills. It helps pills go down more smoothly and, with three great flavors – citrus, strawberry and cola, it covers up the bad taste.

“My son started a new prescription medication, and the first pill he took dissolved in his mouth leaving a terrible taste and a kid refusing to take his medicine. I decided to go on the web and search. I found this company that described just what I needed, a pill coating! The company is called MEDCOATUSA®. My son has no issues taking his pills now. It’s easy to use and I’m so glad I found a solution to my problem,” said a mom & MEDCOAT® customer.

Another mother had a similar story, “My son, Matthew, has intractable epilepsy. He currently takes 4 antiepileptic medications. One in particular is hard for him to swallow. It is pretty big and chalky. After night after night of gagging on his meds, my husband searched the web and found MEDCOAT® pill coating. We ordered it right away. We immediately saw the difference in his ability to swallow the drug. He enjoys picking out what flavor he wants to use and even likes to push the pills through the coating himself. Medicine time (3x/day) is no longer a struggle.”

Stories like these from parents across the country are the reason more and more moms are turning to this new pill coating for their kids … to help take some of the stress out of “pill time.”
