I have seen posts about this before and now that it has happened to me I can understand how weird it makes you feel...
I started taking Wellbutrin XL to help wean myself off the Effexor XR since Effexor has helped me to gain 30 something pounds and Wellbutrin is known for not causing weight gain... SO, I did a poopie today and guess what was in it?? The WELLBUTRIN PILL!! It was so weird to me as I've never ingested something like that only to see it come out the other end... (Except for corn maybe but I considered that normal since it happens to most people).
I wonder if they make the casing for the pill undigestable to help it with the controlled release thingy...
OK, now for the EEEEWWW part, if you have a sensitive stomach, DO NOT READ FURTHER!!!!!
Ok, you know how us U/C'ers are always examining our poopie as soon as it hits the water, and today after I finished... I saw this little white ball floating in it and just HAD to check it out... EEEEEWWWW...... I fished it out of the potty.. yes, I FISHED IT OUT... (with a tissue, not my hands..LOL) and I gave it a squeeze... EEEEWWWW!!!! (also with a tissue) and realized it was the casing of the Wellbutrin pill... and sure enough, it was empty!!
I then sanitized the entire bathroom, including my entire body as I've never been quite this intimate with my poopie before..
Just thought it was weird and wanted to share LOL...
