I would not do that, some active ingredients in medications are time
released, or meant to be dissolved slowly.

answer 2
Gee, I never opened up a capsule, but if there is indeed an actual pill inside, you probably shouldn't crush it. The medication is meant to be delayed-release, and crushing the pill would short-circuit that effect, and possibly cause the medication to be less effective, or possibly even dangerous. Too much medicine over too little time...

Since the total mg of each capsule is 20.6 mg and it states that it is equivalent to 20.0 mg, I would assume that the magnesium is 0.6mg.

answer 2
Well, it says "20.6mg [of omeprazole magnesium] equivalent to 20mg omeprazole..." so I would assume that makes it .6mg (6 tenths of a milligram) of magnesium...

Question

what is the white caplet inside of the capsule ? Is this the magnesium?

I am concerned that if this is magnesium, it will have a laxative effect. I would like to take the omeprazole magnesium if this is not magnesium as such because of the laxating effect. I like capsules better than pills- they are easier to take.

If you take the kind with Magnesium, it will have a laxative effect.
Therefore, if you do not want that effect, get the kind without the Magnesium.

omeprazole magnesium means that the omeprazole salts have been been binded with magnesium ion. the end result is omeprazole magnesium. this version works better for my severe reflux that plain omeprazole.

Although they're the same price, the milligrams are slightly higher with the magnesium. Therefore, you get more for your buck with the magnesium.

EQ Omeprazole delayed release tablets (20 mg) contain the active ingredient Omeprazole in its "chemical base" or "non-salt" form. Prilosec OTC contains 20.6 mg of Omeprazole magnesium, which is the magnesium salt form of Omeprazole. They have been shown to be bio-equivalent.

I don't know where gelatin comes from, but, it's the capsule covering. Gelatin is used so it will dissolve after you swallow the pill.
