"Many of the feel good hospice drugs are liquid." - vkg

If they taste bitter I won't be able to take them. One time the doctor gave me some kind of narcotic cough syrup and it tasted really bitter and I couldn't take it. It was absolutely disgusting tasting.



two things come to mind:

1. if the pain is great, you'll take anything no matter what the taste.

2. a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down, the medicine go down, the medicine, .... I heard that somewhere. :)
