  1. I have a questions regarding medications and mixing of medications. When giving multiple medications through a nasogastric feeding tube, you must crush and give separately and flush in between to prevent the medications from interacting with each other. My question is, is there not a risk of them interacting with each other once they all end up in the stomach together? Is this just much less likely to interact there, but still a possibility? while the feeding tube would be a guarantee to interact with each other if given together? Also can uncrushed medications ever be given thru a nasogastric feeding tube, such as enteric coated or sustained release? Or if they can't be crushed then you simply don't give them and try to find an alternative?
