Anyone have suggestions on how to get a 3 year old to take ibuprofen? Are there any products out there that aren't liquid?

I told my DD it was "big girl medicine" and would make her feel better.
QTpie2009 responded:
My DS usually doesn't have any problem taking medicine. However, the last time he was sick he had to take a really nasty tasting medicine and started refusing to take it. I mixed a little juice with it in the medicine cup and stirred it around. He didn't even know it was medicine (from the taste). If it's just the site of the medicine, I'm not sure how to get her to take it.

They do make chewable tylenol and ibuprofen. My DD takes the liquid better than the chewables though.
