Carbon will the active chemicals in your medication. A few grains will absorb a tiny amount. Carbon has limited capacity to absorb things, so after 2 or 3 weeks in your tank it is probably exhausted, so unless it is new carbon it probably is already used up and now wont be anything.

Yea I don’t know if I’d be worried about a couple little bits. Like Aiken said, if it’s been in there for any length of time it’s likely “used up”
