Caustic contents?

This "caustic ingredients" thing is interesting. Years ago, when I took Prozac, I found the 20 mg pills (the only size available at the time) too strong. I asked my doctor if I could divide the contents into two capsules; he checked with the rep (I think this was Lilly too?) and she said no, the contents are too caustic.

Interesting...of course, they do have to cover themselves. I'm a biologist, and have containers of sodium chloride (table salt) and sucrose (common sugar) in my lab. They each warn that in case of contact with skin, one should flush with water for 15 minutes and call a doctor if any reaction occurs. I wonder if it's a similar CYA situation with pharmaceuticals?
