They sure do.  Sometimes I think wistfully of the delicious taste of  
Paregoric -- NOT!  My mother used that as a remedy for literally  everything.

Did she put it on a lump of sugar as my grandmother did?  Not a favorite, but
as Mary Poppins said "a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down."
I used to loathe castor oil, which was administered regularly spring and fall.
Quinine wasn't as bad in "Grove's Tasteless Chill Tonic" which was definitely
not tasteless, but I didn't hate it. Modern medicine has a lot of problems, 
it doesn't taste as bad.
