Mine hate panadol too. We use nurofen and they like the taste of it. Plus it works well.

I use a dropper, both my kids just suck it out, mustn't taste too bad for them, but they hate when I squirt it in.

My son is also really bad at taking meds, it's always a battle. Things I do, get a different taste Panadol, strawberry or orange better than cherry. Mix it up with something he will eat or drink, like juice, yogurt? Use the soft syringe and squirt into the side of his mouth very quickly a little bit at a time, hold his head back a little bit and help him swallow by tickling his throat. Massage his cheeks.

Ds was really really bad. I could get it in, only for him to sit up and projectile it all out soon after.
He needed abs one time, at around 16mnths, I ended up in e.r. Getting them to show me, we get any meds in now without projectile vomiting!
Its quite traumatic, but he has to take it at times, so at these times we do what we have to....
Show him the panadol in syringe, ask if he is going to take it. (he always says no, he is now 2)
Swaddle like a newborn. I use his cot sheet. This keeps his arms down and restricts movement.
I lay him on the couch and kneel beside it, his head cradles into my elbow like a newborns.
Pop the syringe into his mouth, towards the back, aim at the side, squirt some in.
Now, the nurses slowly squirted the whole dose is one go, and he swallowed, I was afraid he would choke! I still an so only do about 1ml at a time.
Keep him laying down for a min, I give him his dummy and try calm him, after a few seconds, unwrap, and give big cuddles!
This initially took 2 nurses to get it into ds and show me, now I can do it myself. Its horrible and I hate doing it, but it works and is the only way to get medication into him, and he sometimes needs that medication!

Now that he is older, would he take it from s spoon or cup?
I had this problem with dd1 when she was nearly 2 - she would scream and thrashed and I had to pin her down to get it in - no way could I do that 3 times a day for a week! Spoon was a little easier, but prone to spill. Little measuring cup she took in one fuss free swallow!

We use nurofen here. I would find if DD didn't want to take it some times it was easier to put it in her bottle or in a yoghurt etc.

When I administer meds to my dd who has been on some form of medication since 4 weeks old I do exactly what others said about squirting to the side of the mouth. I then blow gently on her face which apparently causes them to hold their breath slightly and then when you stop they swallow. This is what I was shown in hospital.
