    You'd better not to crush the tablet.

    The tablet is coated with a layer of wax which determines its dissolving rate in your stomach and intestine, if you crush the tablet, the layer will be destroyed and the release rate of the drug may not be uniform, leading to possible side effect or delayed action of the drug.

    Hope this can help.
