Cant swallow tablets help!
My new medication says you can break or crush the tablets in the information my consultant and pharmacy told me it would be fine to snap and swallow smaller. Is this correct as I have terrible trouble swallowing tablets

It appears you are referring to an immediate-release tablet formulation of acetazolamide 250mg. it is safe to split the immediate-release tablets. Extended-release capsules should not be broken.
