in half and the medicine is still in there. whoever said, "your still getting your medicine even if you are pooping the tablet is wrong
Sorry but you are wrong. I am not familiar with the exact tablet you are referring to but most probably the acid in the stomach will dissolve the protective coating on the tablet, the tablet then will then either break down or the medicine will now pass through the coating and be absorbed into the bloodstream in the small intestine.
