Re: Opening up capsules?
It depends on the type of capsule.
Omeprazole needs to be protected from the stomach acid (enteric coated).
Some of the capsules are them selves the enteric coating...... you shouldnt open these, in others, the capsule is just a normal gelatin capsule, and inside there are enteric coated beads, or even an enteric coated tablet.... you can open these.
I would go back to the pharmacist, with the pills and the pamphlet, and ask him to check wether you can safely open them up.
