That is part of the time release mechanism you just destroyed when you broke the pill. Claritin D 12 hour is a time release medication and is meant to be swallowed whole-never ever break, split or crush time release medications. If you break it you risk getting too much medication in one bolus.

Taking a non-drowsy medicine tends to keep me awake at night. Is there a Claritin product that is not non-drowsy, but still effective.
