Can you crush Metformin pills?
- 14 Sep 2005 by JimBath
If I crush my wife's Metformin HCL pills, will it be harmful to her in any way? Does anyone do this? I cannot find an answer to this question anywhere. My wife is 66 years old and fairly beatup with health problems over the past decade. The Metformin pills are so big she often chokes on them.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
