Don’t Rush to Crash: Rules of crashing medication for patients

  1. Administer each medication separately.
  2. Do NOT mix different medications together into one preparation as chemical incompatibilities may occur.
  3. Use water at room temperature. Warm or hot water may affect the medication.
  4. Equipment (e.g. motor and pestle) MUST be thoroughly washed and dried between patients.
