vial

Here is my best explanation:

'bottle' is the definition.

(vial is a kind of bottle)

'setter consumed in the flipping toilet' is the subsidiary indication.

'setter' becomes 'i' (the person that set the crossword).

'consumed in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'the flipping' says the letters should be written backwards.

'toilet' becomes 'lav' ('lav' can be a synonym of 'toilet').

'lav' backwards is 'val'.

'i' placed inside 'val' is 'vial'.
