From the Weblink in skinnyguys post is where the info came from:
If you have difficulty swallowing the delayed-release capsules, you may add the contents of a delayed-release capsule to applesauce. Place one tablespoon of soft, cool applesauce in an empty bowl. open the delayed-release capsule and carefully empty all the pellets inside the capsule onto the applesauce. Mix the pellets with the applesauce and swallow the mixture immediately with a glass of cool water. Do not chew or crush the pellets. Do not store the applesauce/pellet mixture for future use.
When in doubt always check with your PCP is my best advice.
Well it depends on what he is taking. He said just Omeprazole.
For example, if he is taking Zegerid (Omeprazole), you absolutley cannot spilt the pill and dump out. They make a powered packet for this which is completly different.
It also says on that link: Swallow the delayed-release omeprazole capsules, the regular capsules, and the nonprescription delayed-release tablets whole; do not split, open, chew or crush them. Do not crush the nonprescription delayed-release tablets in food and do not open the regular capsules and mix the contents with food.
So who really knows? ? I am postive that as far as Zegerid, and presrip Prilosec, you cant do this. Reason I am sure, is I wanted to do this also, asked my doctor and pharmisist and they said you cant.
But maybe with certain type.
Skinny guy, your best bet is to just ask the local drug store.
