Johnone: Sorry about that. I did not finish and i hit something by accident and it sent the above. I was curious how you got diagnosed with candida and what are all of your symptoms. I look forward to your reply. LaLa

Most of the time, the information that comes with the pill tells you whether it is safe to crush the tablets.
