No data available on Tambocor® brand. Enteric coated/modified release products should not be crushed. Crushing or dispersing should always be used as a last resort but current text books and resources suggest crushing of generic flecainide it is likely to be safe when dispersed in deionised water (note some resources do not recommend this). The crushed tablets have a local anaesthetic effect, so should be used with care in patients with swallowing difficulties.
