The problem, in this case with this antibiotic and most meds is that if you chew them it can release too much medication at once increasing the possibility of experiencing more side effects.
There is a liquid suspension to make it easier for you but do not crush, chew, or split the tablet, instead ask your DR. for the liquid dosing.
"Metronidazole injection is given as an infusion into a vein. A health care provider will give you this injection if you are unable to take the medicine by mouth.
Shake the oral suspension (liquid) before you measure a dose. Use the dosing syringe provided, or use a medicine dose-measuring device (not a kitchen spoon)."
All the best, masso
