Someone said :
Imagine the crushed pills' ingredients interacting with the mash or the yogurt they are mixed with.
Imagine the same tools used to crush and mix the medicines of different patients
Can you explain what you mean by this? Im not sure ive heard of any medications that are contraindicated with yogurt.
And as for any residue left on the spoon, im not sure what drugs you are talking about but they would have to be active, and dangerous, in seriously small amounts.
Is there proof that this even happens?
How long before guidelines are issued on which medicines can be crushed, and which ones cannot.
Issued to who?
Doctors and medication instructions already give this info. Slow release tablets are nothing new.
Or what should be prescribed to a patient who cannot swallow pill due to physical or psychological barriers?
Oral liguid, sublingual tablets, injections, suppository, patches.
