    I just read the article where you compare capsules and tablets.
    You use incorrect arguments to make a statement in favor of a tablet, where a capsule is more flexible for drug applications, is more divers as it can come in almost every color (combination) and can be printed to identify the product.
    Coating is also applied on capsules (but not common).
    capsules are cheaper as you do not need to much exipients to make a tablet, you just need the drug and some protecting exipient to fill the capsule (what can make the size smaller and thus easier to swallow)
    you can never compare a capsule with plastic, it’s 100% natural….
    you do not speak about the HPMC type, it’s the vegetarian type
    and so on…

      Just wanted to say that while some tablets and capsules could be crushed or broken and the contents poured into a suitable and palatable liquid, this is the absolutely not the case with many drugs (and could pose a health hazard for a variety of reasons.) Before you go about breaking up a tablet or capsule and doing this, contact a local pharmacist and ask them if this is acceptable for the drug.

        GREST POINT!!! Medication comes with some pretty good info on how and when to take the prescription. Also how it works in the body. Some rapid relese med’s can be extremely dangerous, to much to soon and deadly!!! And time realese med’s are designed to slowly enter the blood stream. Way good idea to talk to the Doc or the Pharmacist.

      I was taking the capsul & got changed to the tablet by mistake. It didn’t work at all & just made me sick. . The capsule has a time release that gets me to the end of the day. It is a huge difference. I strongly advise you to try the capsules. I can feel the calories burning away. Down 35 lbs already. Just my opinion.

    I thinks your is physical correct but not a benificial information for a doctor because some medicne require Bsic medium for absorption so that’s why a coat is used for capsule medicne because There is HCl in stomach which is Asidic medium.
