Cymbalta Administration

  1. Can someone tell me how to administer cymbalta 60 mg down a feeding tube? I have orders to do so, but I am at a loss as to how to do it effectively.

    I'm sitting here looking at my drug reference on it and it says "Swallow cap whole; do not break, crush, or chew; do not sprinkle on food or mix with liquid." (pg. 397 of Mosby's 2007 Nursing Drug Reference). It also indicates that it's only available form is in capsules. I think you need to call the doctor and get this order changed.
