You need to take Titan back to the vet. He may need a different kind of medication. Make sure he's drinking adequate water. Most sure you give him fresh water daily. You may have to mix some water with his food to get more water into him.

The only way to really know whether a cat is eating/drinking/urinating/defecating normally or not is to isolate the cat. Shut him in one room such as the bathroom. You will then know who is doing what in the litter pans. One way to see if a cat is urinating blood or not is to put white paper towel in the litter pan or if you're watching the cat when he goes to urinate, slip a white paper towel under him so the urine will hit the paper towel. Then you can easily see whether his urine is bloody or not.
Cats usually prefer privacy when using the litter pan and you may simply not have seen when your cat poops. Again, isolating Titan in one room will make it easy for you to know he's pooping normally too.
