My husband has feeding and I have ran out of his pain medication and I wanted to know it is ok to crush tylenol extra strength caplets 500 mg. and how many can I give him in a 24 hour period.
Yes, you can crush Tylenol ES and mix with water and give via a feeding tube. You can give no more than 1000mg per dose and no more than 4000mg in a 24 hour period so you can give 2 tabs, 4 times a day 6 hours apart. Be sure that you crush them fine and mix with water then flush the tube well with water after the medicine is given.
