What HIV meds can be crushed?

Jul 29, 2012

If you are unable to swallow whole pills which HIV meds can be crushed and taken in powder form?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Talk to your doctor about pediatric formulations of HIV medications since most are made in liquid form.

Most HIV medications taste horrible when swallowed crushed up.

I take a lot of pills and some are pretty big. I have found that taking them in the middle of a meal with a thick liquid like almond milk can make them a lot easier to swallow.
