I can't swallow tablets and my doctor said I can crush it. Recently I noticed when taking metformin that it is not crisp. It was mushy and smelled fishy. Is it supposed to smell fishy?
Never did read or hear that Metformin tabs could smell fishy, or they were not crisp, however if your doc did say that they could be crushed you could perhaps mask the smell by adding a non sugary juice or edible, but please do check it with your doc first before you do this, hope it helps?
