    HI, does anyone have any ideas about which is easier to breakdown? Since I am still on Prilosec and am in the process of slowly getting off it, I am wondering which is better to take? Do capsules break down easier. There have been one or two times I have seen whole tablets in toilet.I always thought capsules were better but I am just not sure. Any ideas? thanks, Jess

    What pills were they? I've heard that you can tell if the form of calcium you are using will break down in your stomach by putting one in some vinegar. If it doesn't dissolve in an hour, it won't dissolve in your stomach, either.

    Now that tablets are using stuff like magnesium stearate and brewer's yeast they should be as good as capsules.

    best wishes,
