Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Yes, the drug is usually prepared in a form which is hard and it needs to be digested in the duodenum to work effectively hence , it is made hard,

You also get the drug in syrup form.You can ask for the same in the pharmacy.

Wish you good health.

Welcome to HCM!
Thanks for posting your query. I am happy to address your questions. Livolin are soft-gelatin capsules and need to be stored at a temperature not exceeding 30°C and to protect from direct sunlight. If they have become hard will recommend you to get it changed, as maybe the storage condition has modified it. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help.
