Whole pill in, whole pill out?!!!

Does anyone know what it means if you take a pill, and 24 hours later it comes out looking like it did when you took it?

Re: Whole pill in, whole pill out?!!!

was the rest of the stool full of sloid bits of food? if so then that either indicates a lack of digestive enzymes/ hyrochloric acid being produced or what is being produced isn't being put to good use due to stress (diverts blood away from digestive system to muscles to aid a flight or flight response for a "perceived" threat) or possibly pancreatitis (infection of the duct from the pancreas leading to it being blocked and therefore pancreatic juices cannot properly be execreted).

It means the stomach acid as well as your digestive enzymes system is not digesting that particular type pill--- some people call them bed pan bullets!
It is not unusual-- If it a vitamin or supplement then change to a soft gel type or capsule.
