I tried twice to swallow the big tablets with water, but they got caught in my throat. I have been crushing them in order to take the prescribed dose. Does crushing the tablets lessen their effectiveness?
Yes, you may crush them. I would recommend putting them in a soft food like pudding or applesauce. Swallow this mixture as soon as you mix it up-dont allow it to sit. There is a suspesion available (liquid form of the medicine). You might want to ask your Dr about prescribing the liquid for you since you have trouble swallowing the pills.
