Hi, it looks like your question got cut short... could you add some more detail please?
My Tramadol capsules are full of powder but yours, if you open it is probably full of little waxy balls. It is insoluble in water (citation available on request). It is pointless trying to make it work faster. If you take the cap of a capsule to try to split it you will end up with little waxy balls all over the floor, everywhere. Those things just seem to explode in your hands if you mess with them.
buzby1; Your question is cut off. I am guessing your asking if you can open the capsule and take less. NO THIS IS TIMED RELEASE MEDICATION MANY TIMES THOSE BEADS ARE A DIFFERENT COLOR ETC AND Dissolve at different rates if you think you need to take less call your doctor and get the strength you need. Never take and break a extended-release tablet or capsule you could really mess up these are made to slowly release medication through out the day you get the wrong ones you could get just binder or medication and it well no longer be timed release and get it all in your system and end up with a overdose Call your doctor to get what you need.Your playing with a rattlesnake with timed release medication.Chuck1957 medically retired pharmacy technician Cpht
