Hi, does anyone know if anything out there to drink as a supplement besides Gatorade and Pedialyte?   Maybe easier to keep down?   My son is on day 10 of his third cycle, we are back in the ER for fluids and potassium.   He only puked twice today and yesterday so hoping we are moving slowly into recovery, but we think his cycle is being prolonged by the fact he can't / won't drink anything but water.   He "can't stand" the taste of Gatorade (too sweet) or Pedia Lyte (gross).   Any suggestions?   Much appreciated in advance.

My son likes Propel and lately Body Armor sports drinks better than Gatorade. Good luck. Take care.

C2 O may as well be water.. son only will only drink Powerade.

There are hydration supplements that you can get. Literally google hydration supplements.. drip drop, banana bag, speedlyte one like that. Drip drop you get from Walgreens, banna. Bag is amazon and speedlyte is nasty, but can help in a pinch. We use these for traveling..

You can buy plain electrolyte powders with no flavoring that can be added to the drink of your choice. For flavored options I like the nuun brand as they are not too sweet.
