We have sent people to the moon; we can put calculators, altimeters, barometers and heart monitors into watches; we have tiny little phones that can carry information for everyone we've ever called, all our music and our complete calendars for 2007/2008. And yet we can't manage to make cough syrup taste good! Does anyone else see a problem with this?

Ok, maybe it's the cold medicine talking, or maybe it's the buzzing inner ear thing, but it seems to me that it's not too much to ask for. The other day I had this yummy chocolate-y candy thing that turned out to be a calcium supplement. And yet Cough Syrup still tastes like crap. I even tried the little kid version in the hopes that it would taste ok and I'd just have to take more - nope, still tastes like crap.

Enough for my rant I'm heading back to bed, I thought I'd try working from home, but the computer screen is swimming in front of me and I can't tell you how many typos I've committed just trying to get this little bit down!

I've never been a fan of liquid medicine, pills are fine but the syrups are just so nasty!
I've never tried it, but liquid Amoxacillin actually smells like it would be good, it smells like bubble gum, and when I give it to kids in the ER they seem to like it.
Hope your feeling better soon.

Whenever I have to get a liquid med for my kids, I see if I can have some flavor added to it so getting them to take it won't be a fight. I wish (or better yet, I wonder) if it's possible to do that with adult stuff! Like a cocktail of health!

Hope you get to feeling better soon!
