Drugs May Be Crushed And Cannot Be Crushed?
, my wife can’t take medicine and always asks to be crushed
Hello Mr. Setyawan! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
There are several types of drugs that should not be crushed because the drug packaging is suitable for how it works in the body. For example, there are drugs that work slowly gradually in the body. The drug packaging has been adjusted so that not all are absorbed immediately. Dopamet is a drug that contains methyldopa. Plasminex is a drug that contains tranexamic acid. Both of these drugs have special membranes on each tablet, so this drug should be swallowed immediately, not crushed. However, if your wife really can not swallow the two drugs, crush it is still safe to do even though it is not recommended so. Eating both of these drugs is better than your wife not taking them at all. Pregnolin is a drug that contains allylestrenol. So far, there is no specific prohibition regarding the erosion of this drug. However, you should discuss with your obstetrician who gives this medicine or with a pharmacist.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
