how to improve the taste of liquid antibiotics

Winter season brings in more antibiotic Rxs...and questions about how to improve the taste of liquid antibiotics.

Antibiotics are well known for not tasting good...and being rejected by many children. For example, cefuroxime (Ceftin) has a bitter aftertaste that can lead to a burning feeling in the throat or mouth.

This can be a big deal...not just because it's hard for parents to administer the antibiotic. Missing antibiotic doses or not getting the full dose for certain conditions can be harmful or even life-threatening.
