So, I know that seeing Asacol come out the other end isn't necessarily a problem. Apparently, the shell can come out while the medicine is still absorbed.
However. Today I noticed the little red pills in the toilet yet again, but for once got a better look. I noticed that one of them looked partially split open and I could see it was filled with white stuff (I'm assuming the medicine). If it looked completely filled, does that mean I'm not absorbing it? It definitely wasn't an empty shell. As it is, I see the shells/pills on an almost daily basis, usually at least three of them.
I'm kind of bummed because I take so many of the darn things I'd like to be absorbing them. Also, it seems like the positive effects of the Prednisone are starting to wear off (I've already been to the toilet 3x in the past 3 hours), and I just started tapering to 15 from 20. Ugh. Annoying.
