re: chewing med follow up
Mar 12, 2014
Wow!! Thanks DR. Young for the swift response. I appreciate your feedback and highly respect you for taking the time out to answer our questions and give genuine good caring guidance and suggestions. Glad to know chewing is acceptable. ;-) but with that chewing the med itself would not cause any throat or espohagus issues like esophagitis or Barrett's esophagus, or shatski's ring would it? Sorry for the last few inquiries. It's needed for peace of mind.
Response from Dr. Young
Hi again, and you're very welcome.
I can't imagine that swallowing a chewed pill will result in any medical complications. Sometimes the pill fragments can cause a little irritation, so it's best to take with a good amount of fluid or a little food to wash down the meds.
Peace (of mind) to you, BY
