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
