A client cannot swallow pills and it takes all crushed. Taking it crushed she tells me that she feels burning in the throat and that she could not take it. Can the cause of the burning be for being crushed?
R/ Many people uses to swallow crushed something that is ready to open in the stomach and they notice the taste of ingredients which is not always nice, and this can be perceived as irritation, (not necessarily as burning), but the Betaine personally I think first it would be better swallow it whole and secondly, to know if really needed. On the other hand, when you say crushed would it mean pulverized? It is very acidic, I repeat, I wouldn’t. Another thing is to cut into pieces and swallow-reaching the stomach ready to work, but “crushing, or pulverizing”, I would not…Unfortunately people sometimes have different words for the same thing.
