Medication Help

Ok, science i have been diagnosed with ADD i have been taking 10 MG 'Methylphenidate ER Capsules' And just today i dropped about half my medication on the floor(my mum left the pill bottle open slightly). They are capsules so should i wash them or dispose of them.

    First, don't thow the pills out.  If you go to refill your prescription early, they may not do it unless you turn in the old pills.  
    Capsules will start to dissolve (slowly) in water - I think.  Personally, I would wipe them off, and then just before you take one rinse it off.   Myself, I would not even bother with the rinse, but I don't know what they landed in.
    Happy Holidays!
