Are pills more effective if you break them?

If I broke a capsule-style pill into water would it work better? The pill in mind is benadryl.

    It's going to depend on "effective"

    Some capsules are time-released and by breaking them up and dumping them into water...you might get faster results...but the results won't last as long as it'll burn through your system pretty darn quickly.

    There's a method called parachute basically you take a piece of napkin crushed a pill up put the pill in the center of the napkin and tie up the napkin wash it down with water but when it breaks open from the acid in your stomach you'll get a full effect but whatever you're trying to do I would not recommend this though please make sure you take your medication as advised by your doctor or the instructions on the box

    Depends. Some pills are timed release so breaking them can be problematic. Others no so much. So for benedryl as you mention, it wont make a difference other than faster delivery of the medication

    Nope.

    Most capsuls are designed to be released slowly over time for best effect.

    Not better, but maybe slightly faster.

    No, capsules are prescribed for slow release.
