I would ask a pharmacist about this. Lots of tablets have coatings that dissolve at a certain rate allowing for the medicine to be released at the proper time. I don't know what happens with dissolubles.

Let us know what you find out.

Thank you so kindly, I was actually told it is completely safe. Since it has no I believe they said extended release on it.
Oh that's awesome to know. Thanks for the update. :)
