Can I Cut Open A Capsule And Take The Insides?

Recommended Posts

I just finished my second month with amnesteem and now I'm with claravis and I am really really having trouble swallowing the claravis capsules since they are bigger than amnesteem. Is it okay to cut open the capsules and take the gel?

Or maybe any tips on how to easily swallow a capsule?

Absolutely not. The pills are formulated the way they are for a reason. If you ingest the liquid your body may not absorb it properly.

My only suggestion is to drink more water with your pill.

No...on my package it stresses how important it is to take isotretinoin with a full glass of fluid so it won't get caught or dissolve on the way down--it'll hurt your esophagus. Don't chew or suck on it, either.

Taking pills takes a lot of practice--I've been pretty lucky but my dad can't swallow pills. Make sure you have someone nearby when you take your medication in case you start choking.
