The tablet appears to be the same size in the stool as when taken; however, the colored outler layer is not seen in the stool. The "etched" KC10 can still be seen in the stool so only a small portion of the outside is missing from the table.
The Klor Con tablet is a specially designed extended release (slow release) tablet. The tablet contains the active ingredient (Potassium chloride) inside a wax matrix.
This from https://www.drugs.com/pro/klor-con.html
"... The potassium chloride in Klor-Con® Extended-release Tablets is completely absorbed before it leaves the small intestine. The wax matrix is not absorbed and is excreted in the feces; in some instances the empty matrices may be noticeable in the stool. "
You can be assured that you have absorbed the medicine.
