Is it safe to crush this pill? The directions say not to crush it, but it is too big to swallow.

No, it is not safe to do so. Potassium is very harsh on your gastro-intestinal system, so crushing or breaking the tablet could lead to your developing ulcers, gastritis, or other similar conditions that may be life-threatening.

The stomach pain and gastro-irritation that it causes are the most common side effects that the FDA lists for it.

Have you talked to your prescriber about this issue? If your insurance covers it, you may be able to have an IV infusion of potassium, instead of taking the tablets.
