I agree with Aussie, you may need a change in dosage.
Some medications have a coating that, if broken, could irritate your stomach or esophagus or possibly cause ulcers. Others simply will not work if they are broken and chewed because the stomach acid would destroy the medicine. Another reason is because many medicines are time-released. The time-release capsules (or tablets) gradually give out medicine over a twelve or twenty-four hour time frame. If you were to crush the specially designed capsule, it would not work as a time release pill. In addition, it could be dangerous if the medicine that was supposed to be gradually released over twenty-four hours, was released all at one time into your stomach. I hope this answers your question re crushing meds. You may always call your pharmacist for info re the med .
Take care and hope you get back up to speed quickly. :)
