    Default Crushing Pills

    Hello All,

    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.

    Thanks,

    James H. Bath

    You can crush the plain metformin hcl pills. They only ones you shouldn't are the extended release versions(Metformin ER)
