Pills do not dissolve. They pass through me whole.

Comment from: teddybee65-71on Treatment for 1-6 months Published: April 25

Stomach cramps, sluggish feeling, dark stool, and hot and cold as if a fever, but rotated back and forth without delays in frequency for about 10 days. Been taking for about 45 days, stopped taking and symptons are beginning to clear up.Teddy

On cellcept and predisone for poorly controlled myasthenia gravis. Have significant leg cramps and muscular contractions at night. Blood tests show low K. Also have other multiple co-morbid conditions. To those seeing complete pills passed; the "pill" is just a "carrier" for the medications. The med dissolves slowly and is absorbed by the body and leaves the porous pill behind. I take other pills that have the same process.

I occassionally see whole tablets, apparently not digested, in my stools.

the pill does not resolve, it passes through me whole, completely undissolved. I put a pill into a glass of water mixed with vinegar and it was still whole after 48 hours. In my opinion it is useless and I will report it to my Doctor and Pharmacyst.

when I take two of these pill daily I get severally constipated. I have crohn's disease and have diarrhea without these pills, but I can't find a happy medium. I've been on the sofa for 3 days this week, due to muscle pain and tiredness. Seeing my dr. tuesday. pray for me.

Diarrhea, black stool

Comment from: Emanon65-71on Treatment for 6 months to - 1 year Published: September 02

Low potassium in blood caused severe muscle cramps. This treatment relieved the cramps completely in less than a week or so.

Comment from: pattybeak55-64on Treatment for 5-10 years Published: November 15

I have to take 80mcq a day so the Dr told me to take 4 pills in the am and 4 pills in the pm. This has caused severe stomach pain,so after looking on WebMD, I will try to separate the pills more.

This pill also passes threw me and I was going to stop taken it until I learned that the body sucks the potassium from the pill and the leftover pill is discarded.

The pharmacy switched me over from a capsule full of powder to this controlled-release tablet. I had diarrhea for several weeks after that, but didn't make the connection until I noticed a pill floating in the toilet. It turns out this was happening every day. I had my potassium checked and it had fallen to the very bottom of the normal range, so I had them switch me back to the capsules.
