# Azithromycin 200 mg/5 mL liquid-- each teaspoon (5 ml) containing 200 mg of azithromycin.

What a sweet parent for trying to get good advice :)
I must share my story... I got respitory infections often as a child. I HATED my medicine. My parents would lay me on the floor, mom would sit on top of me (straddling me) and holding my arms down and my dad would force the meds into my mouth! I hated it!!!
