    Default Metformin does not dissolve, but "passes"

    I have been asking my Internist for a year, and he does not have a
    usable answer.
    I can see the Metformin in my stools, with no apparent dissolving. I
    know that it is the Metformin due to size and I did a multi-day trial
    not taking various similarly shaped drugs and vitamins.

    Question:
    What are the best forms of Dissolvable Metformin?
    Does the fact that this is Metformin "ER" make a difference?

    This has been posted before. Let's see if I can remember it correctly. I
    believe the ER has a shell to it that does not dissolve and will come out in
    the stool. You may or may not notice it.

    I don't know if you would notice it or not and frankly I don't care. But
    the OP was noticing it and was concerned. So I answered.

    Lets see now, how would I notice it? There is a bunch of paper floating on
    top of the stools. I would need to move that and poke around and break
    things up to find the shells. Is it worth the effort?

    Yes, it is a serious question, many serious things have been
    found when one notices something awry with a stool but a
    little humour doesn't go astray either .

    It was a long time ago and I believe the thread involved
    oldal. It's the inactive ingredients that usually pass
    through.

    You're not seeing the metformin. You're seeing the casing that makes
    the extended release possible.

    On some package insert or list of info from the pharmacy, it describes
    this.

    Don't worry. You're getting the meds.

    as others have said, it's the casing. What you are seeing is a plastic-
    type shell left over, which is designed to release its payload slowly
    and not dissolve and let it all go at once.

    Other XR or ER type preparations are the same, such as blood pressure
    medications designed for continuous release.
