When I had my surgery 6/16/15 they told me to take my medicine one pill at a time 15 minutes apart how long do I have to do this for it is so much easier to take them all at once?

My surgeon had me crushing my pills.  After a month, I just started taking them whole all at the same time.  I take 7 pills.

Each surgeon/practice seems to have their own rules about pills. You may want to give their office a call and ask for guidance directly from them.

I'm about 2 weeks out from my surgery and am crushing my pills and taking them with some yogurt so I don't gag on the taste of them. Not sure if I would try whole pills until the surgeon or GP gives the OK.
