Ciprofloxacin - can you crush Cipro 500 tablets and mix with food?

Official answer


Although it is not ideal, you can crush ciprofloxacin, but only mix it in a small amount of food. If for some reason you don't finish the food you won't get the whole dose. It may not taste very good either.

You can ask for the suspension if you have trouble swallowing.
