You need to call your doctor and just ask him or the nurse, they should be able to get back to you probably within a day for a question as simple as that.

In a lot of medicines, you will have pieces of the capsule come out in the stool. Check the information insert that came with the medicine from the may very well tell you that you will see this in your stool. I've noticed this on some of my mother's drug inserts. You can also call the pharmacy and ask them if you do not find anything on the insert. Janetto
