Default Methotrexate - can you crush it?

Hello! I am about to start taking methotrexate (I already take IVIG for my autoimmune neuromuscular issues).. however, I have not swallowed pills in 5 years since my swallowing is weak from my muscular issues.. Is it ok to crush or dissolve the methotrexate ( I know to be careful with it, as I don't want to spread it or expose anyone else in the family)...

Thanks in advance!

Have you talked to your pharmacist? They probably would help you. Take care! Update what you find.
