This information explains how to use a dissolve and dose container to dissolve medicine in water and give it to your child.

Key points

  • Use a dissolve and dose container so make a solution out of a tablet if your child has trouble swallowing it or their dose does not use an entire tablet.
  • Shake the container a few times as the tablet dissolves. It will take about five minutes for this to happen.
  • Make sure the tablet is completely dissolved and you cannot see any pieces in the container before giving the medicine to your child.
