Won’t be able to help too much because there’s no liquid form of this pill and cannot be dissolved,chewed or broken

Put the tablet in your mouth and continously drink until it goes down.

This is complelely wrong. Many pills are coated and splitting them can mean the dosage is not given in the way intended. In particular, capsules containing powder, gel or grains are intended to pass through the stomach and be absorbed in the intestine. If the stomach acids can get at the drug itself the user is likely not to benefit from using them at all.

Well, it works for me. But i guess i shouldn’t be advising others to do that. Thank you for explaining.
