Safe or appropriate to crush
Crushing or dispersing should always be used as a last resort but current text books and resources suggest it is likely to be safe (although very limited information to support this). Clinicians should be aware that this is an unlicensed use of the medication. Tablets can be crushed and dissolved in water immediately prior to administration.
