I take care of an Alz patient that can no longer swallow pills. She has a lot of pain in her joints and needs pain med. She wont take the adult liquid Tylenol or the crushed Tylenol, it is very bitter. I use just a little in drinks, mix with applesauce, mixed in peanut butter etc. I tried it, it is awful. Can you please help us!

We have her in a very sweet disposition most of the time. Cutting sugar out helped a lot. I have worked with Alz for yrs and I stay 24/7 and take off when I need to. It is good for them and me, it upsets everything to have someone new come in and I hav
