Besides, can you crush sucralfate?
Tablets: Do not crush or chew (the tablet dosage form is not amenable to crushing or chewing). The sucralfate tablet is scored and may be cut into two pieces for ease of administration. Sucralfate suspension is for oral administration only.
One may also ask, can sucralfate be dissolved in water? Simply place a 1.0-g sucralfate tablet in a 30-cc medicine cup without crushing and add 15 to 30 cc of water, preferably warm water but room temperature is adequate. Within 30 sec the sucralfate will dissolve into suspension on its own.
