Brief Answer:
Can cause a vomiting.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Crushing the tablet of doxycycline will cause a very bitter taste in the mouth and can induce a vomiting. In case you feel that you can swallow the powder with water then there is no harm in crushing and taking the tablet.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

Brief Answer:
You can crush a normal tablet- not SR one.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
All the tablets are not slow releasing. You can take 100 mg tablet after crushing- a single tablet only at a time - then it will not cause any overdosage.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
Regards.
