Brief Answer:
not to worry...

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service...
I've gone through your query in details...
I can understand your concerns...

Yes, as a mandatory rule, most of the tablets and pills come with the precaution not to crush before consumption as it can be quite unpalatable and the effectiveness of the medication can also be reduced...

However, since it got crushed inside your mouth only there shouldn't be any concerns...Hope you didn't spit it out and swallowed it right away, please ensure to drink an adequate amount of water while taking the pill from the next time...

Let me know if I can assist you further...

Take Care
Kind Regards
