My medication tastes bad

Here are some tips for masking a bad taste:

  • Place the medication in a small amount of food. Do not do this if your doctor or pharmacist has told you that the medication must not be taken with food. If you are unsure whether your medication can be taken with food, check with your pharmacist
  • Get a large glass of water ready. Hold your nose, then swallow the medication with some water. Use the rest of the water to rinse out your mouth, then unplug your nose. This works for all kinds of medications, including those that must not be taken with food.
