    My son has been taking Proglycem since he was 3 months old. He is now 24 and is still on it. It works wonderful....and as long as it still works, I refuse to let them do surgery on him to remove part of his pancreas (which is not a common procedure). When he was a baby, I would squeeze his cheeks together and squirt it in. When he was 5, he was able to take the capsules, but that didn't last long as the company quit making the capsules back in 1993. Yes, the oral suspension taste terrible and lingers. He prefers to take it after he eats so it doesn't ruin the taste of his meal.

    My daughter has been on for 4 months and takes twice a day. She says tastes terrible and I agree but she says its better to just take and be done with it. She waits 30 minutes and then eats something to get the taste away.

    We have a 14 month old little boy who has to take Proglycem suspension. It tastes awful. I was wondering if anyone with a similar situation has any suggestions or experiences that would help us get the medicine down. We have tried chocholate and it hasn't helped.

    Used after efficacy of prednisolone decreased on my 5 year-old ferret.

    My 7 month old has taken this drug for 2 months. It tastes horrible and is very difficult to make an infant take a whole dose of something that taste so bad. It also has bad side effects. He grew hair on his forehead and this really bothered me!

    Used for severe hypoglycemia. Seemed to keep BS up but tasted horrible and made me gain 11 pounds of fluid in one week. So had to discontinue treatment.
