Medication is a struggle

We've been giving C liquid medications since we brought him home.  After months of trial and error we feel like we have it down pretty solid.  Then there are nights like tonight.  Usually, C drinks his medicine with about 20 ml of either breast milk or almond milk.  But tonight, he refused no matter what we tried.  Usually when this happens we suspect that the antibiotic will or is upsetting his stomach so he doesn't want to take it.

I hate these nights, we syringe each medication to him undiluted milliliter by milliliter, while he screams and struggles.
