Can I chew one of these pills? The box doesn't say it has to be swallowed and I have a lot of trouble swallowing pills and tablets...

It really depends on the formulation of the tablets and I don't know what that is, just from what you've posted. Are there any markings on them?

Since it is not a time released formulation, unless your doctor or pharmacist has specifically instructed otherwise, you can crush them and mix them in something like a spoonful of apple sauce to make it easier to take them.

Just stay away from taking it with dairy products, since that can affect the absorption of the medication and bear in mind that if they aren't intended to be chewable, it is still going to taste awful.

This is an antibiotic, so you may experience side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, skin rash and diarrhea.


Can you post back with the markings on the tablets, so I can check the formulation for you?

I can not swallow these large pills. If my Rx bottle says "Amox-Clav 875mg tabs" and the pill is white with "x" on one side & "3/2" on the other side, can I crush this? Was not sure if these are time released and threw out the Rx literature by mistake. Thank you.
