Feeding baby omeperazole

Pd has prescribed omeperazole for our 3 months old baby as he has reflux issue. The instruction is dissolve content in 5ml of water, stir and just feed 0.6ml. My question is the content beads seem to not dissolve, and read that it is not meant to be crushed/chewed, so does it really work if i feed the baby just the water portion or do i need to feed him the beads as well?
