Default Crushing Campden Tablets

Hi, I'm new to brewing and am starting with a hard cider. I put in the campden tablets today to kill off the wild yeast, but i didn't crush them first. Is it ok to just leave them in or should I try to fish them out and crush them?

If the tabs aren't dissolved, you should probably fish them out or use a stick or something to mangle them up.
