Why are hydrocodone, yellow 10/325, hard to break, and dissolve. My mother can’t swallow pills, and I can’t hardly get these to dissolve. Is this normal? Should I take them back to the pharmacy? When I do break them for her, they barely crumble. Just looking for some insight on this.

Many narcotics are formulated especially not to dissolve. This discourages anyone from dissolving and injecting the drug. You might ask her pharmacist for suggestions with her problem. Or explain the problem to her prescribing dr. He may be able to switch her to a medication with a different delivery system entirely. Some pills are scored to break in half. Maybe half a pill taken in a spoonful of applesauce, yogurt or ice cream would be easier for her to ingest. Hopefully one of these suggestions might help. Best of luck to you and your mother!
