I crush medication [those that are OK to crush] using the CrushCup/Pill Splitter Set by CGS


 CrushCup/Pill Splitter Set by CGS Inc.,
 shown in two sizes

Inc., which has a unique way to easily crush any pills. See www.pillcrush.com/in

dex.php/products/crushcup-pill-splitter. The CrushCup/Pill Splitter Set can be ordered online or by calling (800) 840-9966. I’ve tried man

y crushers/pill splitters over the years and the CrushCup crushes them all (pun intended!).

I put my crushed meds in a shot glass, add water, stir, and bolus syringe. The syring

e fits easily in the shot glass for drawing the med liquids.
