Have you called your doctor that doesn't sound good. You are not supposed to swallow it, I think it can make you sick. You may want to give the doctor or pharmacist a call for medical advice I wouldn't want to hear of you getting sicker. Good luck. Hope your o.k. I will be thinking about you. Let me know how you are. marjorie zych

I called poison control and swallowing a spriva is not a big deal, the capsule doesent disolve well and if it does this type med is not readly absorbed via gi tract, so you will be fine, but if u do happen to feel weird or sick seek medical attention. i was assured this wasnt a real problem
