How to Consume Crushed Pills
Take your crushed tablets with food or a non-water-based drink. Water, while harmless, has an unpleasant flavour.
Consider what drugs you're taking and how they might interact with food and beverages. Grapefruit, for example, has been known to induce serious reactions, such as preventing drugs from being absorbed by the body.
Mixing crushed medications is not a smart idea. If you need to crush two or more drugs, do it individually and take them one at a time.
What happens if you take a pill and chew it?
Certain tablets can produce the same issues when chewed as when crushed. Some pills are designed to deliver drugs slowly into your body, and chewing them can result in an overdose. Gastric discomfort, oral infections, and other significant adverse effects are possible. Before breaking or chewing a pill if you have trouble swallowing it, see your doctor or pharmacist. They'll be able to inform you what's safe and whether there's a liquid or chewable version.
Is it possible to crush acetaminophen?
Because extended-release tablets can release all of the drug at once, you should not smash them. Extended-release acetaminophen pills should not be split, chewed, crushed, or dissolved in liquid. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is available in chewable, liquid, and disintegrating tablet ("Meltaway") forms for those who have difficulties swallowing pills. Consult your doctor if you have any questions about dosage or directions.
