So on top of everything else we have to deal with, now we have to watch where we put our pills!  I was holding one of my Pentasa pills on my lips because the other one accidentally broke open and I was trying to pick up all the teeny tiny balls.  Well I finally get the balls back in the capsule when I remove the pill from my lip and it was stuck.  I carefully peeled it away and along with it went the skin on my lips!!  No, not a little tear or peel...I have a bright red skinless spot on my lip!  Don't we go through enough??  Just thought that was a little funny tid bit to brighten up anyones day!

I feel your pain. Was opening a gatorade yesterday, and using my teeth to pull the little paper cover thing off and cut my inside lip with it. That sucker bled forever. Oh well, what are you gonna do!

Sometimes you just gotta let one go in the trash. I would not be putting all the little beads back in the capsule!!!

I was at work and I didn't have any more pills on me. Only a small bunch of beads fell out. If it would have been the entire capsule then my garbage can would be rattling away!

I once got a pentasa stuck in my throat and it stuck and hurt before it went down. they get sticky fast when exposed to moisture.
I understand your pain cause for alomst a week I was sore and swollen. it felt like my throat was smaller inside. I was miserable. If pentasa ever comes in another form I will be the 1st in line to take it... lol
