It says do not crush, cut or chew. You would think they would come up with something easier then the pills since its the kids that are treated. Can you give it to him a spoonful of applesauce or something. Lord I just had a Mary Poppins moment. lolol.

My son is too smart for that. He knows there aren't lumps in applesauce or yogurt. He is very picky and knows if something is different than his usual.

The instant release pills can be crushed but the extended release version is coated and should not be crushed (they are not interchangeable, mg for mg): https://www.drugs.com/dosage/guanfacine.html
