My doctor wrote me a script for contrave and wanted me to do some research prior to starting. I'm ready to start taking the medicine but I can't swallow pills. Can I chew contrave or crush it?
harris; NO this is a special pill timed released and coated it has to go down whole I would say put it in a spoonful of applesauce and swallow the spoonful with the complete tablet this works really well with children and people that have problems swallowing pills.DO NOT CRUSH THIS TABLET timed release well change to immediately releases the whole days worth so you have to figure a way to get it down without breaking it or any other way if it releases all at once could be very dangerous.
NO! Do not crush or chew this medication. It is time released and that is not a good idea at all!
