A TMI post
Last Dec/Jan, my insurance made me switch from Effexor XR to the generic Venlafaxine. I take a 150MG pill and a 37.5MG pill each day. I've often seen the smaller pill sticking out in my stool. 3 days ago I saw the larger one sticking out. And so began my 3 day poop analysis (throwaway utensils are sure useful).
Day 1: 2 undigested big pills, 1 mostly digested big pill, and 1 undigested little pill
Day 2: 2 undigested large pills
Day 3: 5 (yes 5) undigested large pills and 1 undigested little pill
So obviously the manufacturer of this generic pill sucks, and makes the XR coating to thick or something. I've read that this isn't exactly uncommon with generic versions of pills. My main question is, how can I have so many pills in one poop, when I only take one large pill and one small pill a day?
It's no wonder my anxiety and OCD has been worse this year!
