Why is it that everytime I drink prune juice for constipation I have to run to the bathroom with horrible painful diarreah and gas?
Osmotic laxative: Prune naturally contains sorbitol which has a mild laxative action. Prunes also contain large amounts of phenolic compounds (e.g. Neochlorogenic and chlorogenic acids), which are also though to have laxative properties. Once the cause of your constipation is diagnosed, a non-osmotic laxative may work better for you. Or simply eat a prune or two.
I had a tonsil/Adenoidectomy yesterday. Taking my Lortab as prescribed, but I'm really constipated from it. Can I drink prune juice to help?
I'm Taking Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) 10/325 as prescribed really constipated. Taking colace 100mg. Can I drink prune juice does it contain peanuts in it. Allergic to them?
May or may not: Bad breath (halitosis) is usually a multifactorial occurrence. The most plausible cause is the luffy epithelial layer of the tongue, which can collect and hide millions of bacterias and chemicals, hence the bad taste or odor. Many foods and drinks can exacerbate such process. Other factors are accumulation of plaque & tartar build up between the teeth & restorations, cavities, & sinus drainage.See 1 more doctor answer
How long?: Prune juice is a New Orleans remedy, that also when I can't find a stomach doctor, to assist my patient. I always thought 6 to 8 oz, to be enough. The reason I am answering this question without knowing the answer is, Many a times I had to beg, with folded hands to my patients not to report me to Licensing Board because C got to D. In California, there are other exotic treatments. See your MD.

I drink 16oz of prune juice everyday to regulate me. Is this healthy to do? I read prunes have high concentration of Acrylamide.
No verdict yet...: Looked that one up. Acrylamide apparently is in a ton of foods, including coffee, black olives & lots of starchy foods. The WHO is collecting data on it, but as of now, there are no evidence-based conclusions regarding whether it is associated with an increased incidence of cancers of any kind. I read eons ago that there may actually be a decreased incidence of colon CA in heavy coffee drinkers...
Does prune juice really work well instead of using a laxative? If so, how much should a person drink each day to become 'regular'?
Maintaining: Regularity naturally involves doing what works for you. Lots of fresh leafy vegetables, and fruits with skins on (apple a day) and dried fruits like prunes and apricots work quite well. Increasing fiber (metamucil is one product). Many use MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) as gentle and reliable. Prune juice alone can wortk for some. Cruciferous veggies (cauliflowerm broccoli, cabbage) may be gassy. Good luck.
No need: Unless you keep it for a while.
