Hello there. 

I can understand your concern.
You can ask the pharmacist for a alternative if he has.
I think itrasys contains itraconazole.
So there are many alternatives available.but most are in capsule form itself.
Its not recommended that you empty the capsule shell.
Because the capsule is there for a reason.
You can ask your doctor to write a alternative antifungal.
Best regards.
