Hello and thanks for your query.

I shall make an effort to provide you with good professional recommendations specific to your questions.

Don't worry - try to drink good amounts of water to help it go down into the stomach. It would dissolve eventually in the stomach even if it is a big piece.

Report to a doctor if any abdominal pain suddenly arises or any dyspepsia. Try OTC digestants to begin with.

Let me know if I have missed out any other concern in your question.

Yet again, I duly appreciate your query to me, I do hope that you have found something useful to help you and I shall be glad to answer any further apprehensions.
