Idea Exchange: Don't shake that bottle; roll it instead

If you have difficulty mixing up amoxicillin, try this method. Add the appropriate amount of water to the powder, and then instead of shaking vigorously, gently roll the bottle on its side. This method allows the powder to mix with the liquid and not get stuck on the bottom of the bottle.
