Patients may not believe their drug is working if they see "ghost" tablets in their stool

Patients may not believe their drug is working if they see "ghost" tablets in their stool.

They may only complain that their drug isn't working because they're too embarrassed to say they saw tabs in their stool.

Keep this in mind when talking with patients on any of the drugs that leave an empty shell or ghost tab behind, such as Allegra-D...Concerta...Exalgo...Glucotrol XL...Invega...K-Tab...Procardia XL...Sudafed 24 Hour...and Urocit-K.
