A nurse gave this to my wife and told her to disolve it under her tongue. Is that the propper way to take this medicine.
I realize this answer is very, very late but may help someone in future.
I think the nurse mistook it for HyoMax SL, which is placed under the tongue. HyoMax SR is a sustained release preparation, which needs to be swallowed whole.
Hyoscyamine is usually taken before a meal. Follow your doctor's instructions.
Do not crush, chew, or open an extended-release tablet or capsule. It is specially made to release medicine slowly in the body. Breaking or crushing the pill would cause too much of the drug to be released at one time. Your doctor may want you to break an extended-release tablet and take only half of it. Follow your doctor's instructions.
