How Long does It Take a Pill to Digest?

Answer

According to my doctor the length of time it takes a pill to digest in the stomach is determined by the type of pill. Gel caps generally dissolve within 10-15 minutes while hard pills can take longer. Soft tablets like children's aspirin begin to dissolve within seconds because of their powdery form.
