Hi all, does anybody know if centrum advance vitamin tabs can be crushed and taken in yoghurt ? I tried to ask a pharmacist at asda but she was very unhelpfull ! and just read the instructions on the bottle ! at the moment I can swallow them if broken in half, but this may not be possible after my first band fill

thanks for any advice !

I’m sure almost any type of tablet can be crushed and taken with yoghurt/fruid puree. However, some capsules are not meant to be opened up and swallowed as they are designed to release the medication slowly to avoid tummy trouble. If it were me, I’d check with your GP or practice nurse. Far better to be safe than sorry.
