Why are dilt xr coming out in my feces without being digested ?

I take Dilt XR 180 mg and a few times over a year I have gone to the bathrooms within 3 hours of taking my pill and have notices the 3 marshmellow size pieces of thepill in my stool. I took a pill apart and soaked it in water overnight they contain these same 3 marshmellow size pieces once they swell up. So my question is why are these comming out in my feces when they are supposed to be 24 hour pills?
