I hope you have gotten your answer by now, but it is fine to crush this medication and administer it in some applesauce, jelly, jam or the like.

Any medication that is not time released can usually be crushed, or broken, to make it easier to take, as long as the manufacturer, or your pharmacist doesn't instruct otherwise.

The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension.

Are you on any other medications?
