... in 1/2 n tried to chew it... will the med still work because it felt like i was almost trying to chew on wax or something goooy.. Help!
The drug will still work but you will get it in you all at once. You can OD like that. I hope you didn't chew it all up. It might also wear off quicker.
Try taking the next pill with some food. It also might help to swallow it with milk because milk coats the stomach. If it keeps making you sick call the Doc. He might have to switch you to something else. But don't keep chewing them up, and don't tell the Doc you did that.
What exactly are you taking? If it's straight oxycodone, you can cut it in half & take it every 2 hours instead of every 4 hours or however you were directed, but if it's time released should have an ER behind the name of it, do not as Thor said cut in half as all the med could be in the half you are taking or it could all be released at one time. I wouldn't suggest chewing any med unless it says it chewable like childrens aspirin etc...

Why does it say "Do not crush or chew" on the Rapamune bottle. Our doctor said to get a .5 mg dose,?
