This is in general mind you but it is reliable way to know. If the drug is in tablet form (ie powder that is a solid) and/or it has score marks on it (used to cut it in half) it is usually safe to crush. If it is a capsule or is coated then it is not usually good to crush. Swallowing big pills is much easier if you put it in applesauce or pudding. Try that first
