Hi, last night I tried to swallow my pill without water but was unable to. some of the pill melted in my mouth before I took it out and waited until I had water to swallow it. I am on microgynon 30, would the bit that melted just be the sugar coating and would it melting affect its effectiveness? It didn't taste powdery so that's why I am assuming it was just the coating. thanks

Hi aimvic,

This is really a question for you to ask a pharmacist as they're the ones who are experts on how to take medications. So, how about giving your pharmacist a call?
