How many pills can I crush in one pouch?

Users are successfully crushing 5 to 8 pills at a time in the pouches. More pills usually requires more flushing cycles after the meds are crushed. Flushing the contents of the pouch is achieved by filling the syringe with liquid, injecting into the pouch, shaking and removing contents multiple times until all dissolved medication is captured.

The question of crushing multiple medications in the same pouch at the same time, is covered in an article by Matthew Grissinger.  Type in Grissinger in the search function to locate the article in our FAQ section.

As of 2/28/2022 every pharmacist surveyed from among RxCrush customers, recommends that only one medication be crushed in a dose. That may include several pills of the same medication but not a mix of different medications.
