Q: Are these the same dosage cups that are provided with most over-the-counter medication?
A: They are similar to other designs. Brands typically choose their own dosage cup design, resulting in many different dosage cup styles. By standardizing your use of KidKupz® for all your liquid medications, you eliminate some of the potential for over-dosing. In other words, one unit of dosage looks the same for every medication.

Q: How does KidKupz® differ from the prescription flavorings on the market today?
A: KidKupz® do not try to hide the taste of the medicine by adding in another flavor directly to the medicine. Flavors that are mixed into medicine do not work as effectively as flavors that follow the harsh or bitter taste of liquid medicine. Simply put, adding an overpowering sweet flavor to a bitter tasting medicine only intensifies the harsh taste. Think of KidKupz® as chasing the bad taste away – like a treat that follows administering medication.
