Testimonials from Parents

“My daughter has a lot of ear infections. Giving her antibiotics is quite an ordeal. She did not want to take it because it doesn’t taste good. I was shown different techniques to administer it, and it is horrible! It breaks a mother’s heart. The doses of antibiotics were big and we I was stressed every time I had to administer the next dose.

Finally, I discovered some tricks by giving her food she likes in exchange for taking the anti-biotics. But, why do we have to go through all this? why not develop drugs that taste good and in more concentrated doses so that we don’t have to give nearly 10 ml per dose?”

Mother from Quebec

“Clarithromycin is difficult to administer to my child cause it’s sandy and she vomited it constantly… They told me to try and mix it with yoghurt but it’s impossible to hide the texture so I ended up getting it replaced with another …

She’s allergic to penicillin and not many of the antibiotics other than penicillin can be made to taste good. It’s very hard when she gets an infection because there are only one or two antibiotics she can take; this will create problems in the future as she is prone to getting streptococcus. ”.
