    I have a crazy question. Does anyone know if any ADHD medication comes in any other form besides a pill. I am having GREAT difficulty every day getting my daughter to take her medicine. She can not swallow the pill and she says the pwder part taste bad and she just does not want to take it. Does anyone have any sugestions that could help me with this.
