Question Concerta absorbtion during stomach issues needing pepto bismol

I'll try to keep this as un gross as possible.

Has anyone had issues with uneven absorption of Concerta during a bout of upset stomach? (I'm not talking about concerta CAUSING an upset stomach, but rather with concerta not working the same way while you have intestinal problems)

Specifically, I took Concerta at the usual time this morning while I was having some minor stomach upset (nothing major.) I took Pepto Bismol about a half hour later and later on in the day. My stomach felt better, but I 'relieved' myself more than usual.

The Concerta effect during the day seemed uneven; it quit way too soon and never really 'peaked.' Could the pepto bisomol or an accelerated pass through the gut impact Concerta?

Any experience?

Contact a doctor if you think you need help. Don't waste 30 years as I did.
