I understand that comtan cannot be crushed. But what about dissolving it in applesauce or some other substance? Is this OK to do? My friend has trouble swallowing and cannot swallow the pills. She has developed more thick mucous here lately, and with some research, I observed some other people had the same problem with dissolving the med, but no answers on if this is safe? Help!?
I would have thought it would be fine to crush the tablet immediately before consumption as it only has a film coating not a special slow release coating.
For an informed answer I would contact the drug company directly. I would be interested in hearing what they suggest.
