How to get my son to take a pill?

So my 5 year old was put on adderall and i cant get him to take the pill. He is haveing a hard time swallowing it.  We are going on our 3rd day trying to get him to take it. Is there anything i can do to help him take it? The doctor said that we cant to open the capsel and put it in something bc it releases at different time through out the day. So he has to take the pill and im so lost on getting him to take it. If anyone can help me that would be great. Thanks
