Do not crush, chew, or break the sevelamer tablet. Swallow the pill whole. Sevelamer tablets expand when they are wet, and breaking or crushing the pill may make it harder to swallow.
Now, there is a powder form of this medication, which you could use as a substitute, consult with your doctor / pharmacist.
well this is an old question but yes i cut it in half and drank cold coffee and i am fine.
