I’m taking 600mg novo proxem pills. They’re anti inflammatory pills. The issue is the fact that I can’t swallow the pills. They’re really big. I checked the website and it said not to crush them because they taste bad but I was wondering if I could do it anyways.

It's fine to crush or cut them. It Won't cause any dammage on your health. Only some people can't tolerate the taste.

You could try to dilute them in a spoon of nutella or jam to mask de the taste.

The pharmacist is solely responsible for the answer.
