How long do you have to crush your pills?



Recommended Posts

Never crushed pills. I stopped taking chewable vitamins and switch back to the Vitamins I took pre-surgery about 2 months ago.

Never crushed pills. I was allowed to swallow small pills immediately and larger whole pills at 7 days post-op.

I never crushed pills either. The hospital had me taking pills day 1 post op.

@Phillygirl_in_DE I crushed mine for the 1st 6 weeks ... They actually worked better crushed!

I was advised to do that because the liquid form of the medication was 3 times the cost and hard to find ... and the actual pill itself was a horse pill ... if you know what I mean ...

I didn't mind crushing .... I'd mix the power in a Nyquil cup with a little bit of Water and stir with a drink stirrer and down the hatch ...

Only part was carrying all those things with me all the time ...

9 month out now ... that time seems so long ago ...

Nope, no pill crushing, ever. I am cutting my Calcium pills in half.

1 week is all I could handle. The dr said I should crush them for 1 month but the taste was unbearable.

I crushed my pills for about 6 months. I take a lot of pills 3 times a day. I wasn't told to crush them for 6 months. That was my choice. Most of my pills are prescription pills so I can't get them in chewable form. I would crush them & put the powder in juice & stir it up & swallow!!
