I have a hard time swallowing my 600mg gabapentin tablets. Is it ok if I crush and mix with apple sauce or break them in 4 pieces to swallow easier?

In brief: Can try liquid

You can crush pill, use a pill cutter or try gabapentin in liquid form which needs to be stored in refrigerator. Discuss with your prescribing doctor. Hope this helps.

In brief: Yes

Crushing Neurontin (gabapentin) to make it easier to swallow is fine.
