14 Nov 2015 My wife is using Minipress XL 2.5 mg twice daily. Now she understood that the tablet is discharged without any change along with the stool. Today we put one tablet in a glass of water at 8 am and after 12 hours there is no change or dissolved in the water.The tablet is so hard.I can't divide it with my fingers; so I tried to break it with a knife.I found the surface is made by something hard object.. If so the tablet is going out with stool, what is is the benefit of using such tablet? Can you give me any explanation ? She was using this tablet more than 2 years I think.
