It all depends on what the pills are. Some pills you are not to chew, crush, etc. because they can be time released and they must be swallowed whole. It should say on the pill bottle and in the patient information that comes with his prescriptions. The pills that are not to be chewed can be dangerous if he does chew them because it can cause an overdose. So please check with his Pharmacist or Doctor about which of his medications can be crushed or chewed. I do have to tell you that I am not a doctor or a pharmacist, I am just giving you advice based on my own expirence.
