Can I cut or crush Viramune and Truvada to swallow? A pharmacist told me that I could put the Truvada in a small amount of water to make it soft to swallow. Any help wil be appreciated. I have diffulcty swallowing pills because of esophgus.

Response from Dr. Henry

Viramune may come on a suspension. I have had some patients crush the Truvada tablet and seem to do OK. KH
