We keep all our new ALLs inpatient through induction. So they usually get IV till we think they can take it and do a trial run. What is “magic shell”? For liquid we do chocolate syrup as a chaser or mix with grape syrup.

Wondering if anyone has come up with any good ideas for patients that have trouble taking steroids orally during induction. We have tried Magic Shell but that isn’t helping…..looking for other ideas!
