Is it good to use aristozyme and lacsyp syrup, s for constipation? Will these have any side effects?

Laxatives: Lacsyp is a laxative like lactulose, aristozyme is a digestive enzyme not a laxative. Occasional laxative use may be OK, but it's far better to increase natural fiber in your diet or add soluble fiber to maintain normal and regular bowel movements. ...Read more

I took a week's doze of azithromicin, 250 mg. Side effects were white tounge and constipation. How long before they go away? Are they alarming??

I took a week's doze of azithromicin, 250 mg. Side effects were white tounge and constipation. How long before they go away? Are they alarming??

Not serious: The constipation probably is a coincidence, unlreated to the antibiotic. The white tongue could be related, but also could be caused by whatever infection required antibiotic treatment. Neither is serious and probably both will clear up in a few days. ...Read more

Why and how does kenalog (triamcinolone) cause constipation? I received one answer saying that it didn't but it is amoung the side effects...

Not common: Kenalog (triamcinolone) is a steroid. Like prednisone. Constipation is not a likely side effect from a shot of kenalog (triamcinolone) but the side affects listed are for steroids in general not necessarily for your treatment dose. Other problems can occur with daily use of steroids. ...Read more

If I take sleeping pills just one night so I can get up early for a trip, will it give side effects such as constipation? That's my main worry

If I take sleeping pills just one night so I can get up early for a trip, will it give side effects such as constipation? That's my main worry

Probably not.: As long as you follow the directions on the bottle, most of the common sleeping pills do not usually cause constipation. I would not go outside the recommended dosage ranges, and I would not use them more than a day or two in a row. Good luck. ...Read more

I am taking 50gr l-thyroxin per day. For aiding constipation I have just took one tablespoon castol oil. Is it going to cause some side effects?

I am taking 50gr l-thyroxin per day. For aiding constipation I have just took one tablespoon castol oil. Is it going to cause some side effects?

Castor oil is a high: Molecular weight oil, and not the best to take for constipation. You don't want it affecting absorption of your meds. Make sure you take your thyroxine first thing in the morning before you even eat your breakfast on an empty stomach. You are better off using buik laxative, or cooked greens/veges and hydration, and movement (exercise like walking) are better to do to reduce constipation long term. ...Read more

One of my side effects from wellbutrin (bupropion) sr 150mg was slow digestion/constipation is that typical?

One of my side effects from wellbutrin (bupropion) sr 150mg was slow digestion/constipation is that typical?

No, not really: Constipation is really not a common side effect to wellbutrin (bupropion). I suggest you make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids. Has your diet changed? It is not unusual for patients to tell me, they didn't know they can call me between appointments for any problems or concerns. But, any patient should be able to call their dr to address issues related to his or her care. There are no "stupid" questions. ...Read more

Side effects of insomnia and constipation of cabergoline still persistent after a month, on lowest dose, now what?

Side effects of insomnia and constipation of cabergoline still persistent after a month, on lowest dose, now what?

Discuss with doctor: If the side effects you have are so severe that you can not tolerate this drug, discuss it with your doctor as to what can be done. If it is so important that you continue the medicine, then you can take a laxative or stool softener to treat constipation and a hypnotic to make you sleep. So talk to your doctor, sometimes as you take the drug over a period of time side effects become much less. ...Read more

Kristalose 20 grams 2 x daily for constipation. Is this safe and a good dose? Any side effects? I have SVT/WPW syndrome.

Kristalose 20 grams 2 x daily for constipation. Is this safe and a good dose? Any side effects? I have SVT/WPW syndrome.

Constipation: Constipation in an otherwise healthy person is usually due to inadequate fiber and fluid intake, and is especially prevalent in Western society due to the widespread use of processed foods combined with a high intake of non-vegetarian foods. Adding fiber supplements e.g. Benefiber, Metamucil, Konsyl and Aloe Vera helps. Lactulose also helps by fighting the colon's effort to dehydrate the stool. ...Read more

Anticholinergic effect on brain is CUMULATIVE = the longer u medicate, the more likely u get dimentia. Same for other side effects like constipation?

Anticholinergic effect on brain is CUMULATIVE = the longer u medicate, the more likely u get dimentia. Same for other side effects like constipation?

WRONG: The anticholinergic effect is NOT CUMULATIVE but is TEMPORARY...only OVERDOSAGE or the UNWISE USE OF CERTAIN MEDICATIONS AT THE SAME TIME can cause central nervous system changes and these are generally REVERSIBLE!

Hope this helps!

I've been on 75 mg of Effexor (venlafaxine) for gad for 3 wks. Some side-effects (constipation, lowered appetite), but no reduction in anxiety. Give it more time?

I've been on 75 mg of Effexor (venlafaxine) for gad for 3 wks. Some side-effects (constipation, lowered appetite), but no reduction in anxiety. Give it more time?

They say 6-8 wks: The time to maximal symptom reduction varies greatly. Early relief may be mostly placebo effect, but the great bulk of users agree that full function can be as long as 6-8 weeks. So, if you can tolerate the side effects, give it more time. But do talk with your doctor so both of you know what's happening and what to expect. Consider a talk therapist too since many mds have so little time. Best! ...Read more

If 0.25 mgs of cabergoline is causing side effects, is it ok to cut it in half? My prolactin is now a 5. Side effects of constipation and insomnia..

If 0.25 mgs of cabergoline is causing side effects, is it ok to cut it in half? My prolactin is now a 5. Side effects of constipation and insomnia..

Already at half dose: If you're taking 0.25 twice weekly and your prolactin is 5, it couldn't have been very elevated to begin with as you're still on the starting dose. You might talk w/your doctor about stopping it and rechecking the prolactin level to see if rx is still required. If it is, try an even lower dose as your level seems easy to control. ...Read more

Vicodin/norco constipation side effects (for chronic pain) - does it lessen with time?

Vicodin/norco constipation side effects (for chronic pain) - does it lessen with time?

ConstipationRelation: Chronic opioid use will inevitably affect GI motility because of the opioid receptors present in the GI tract. It is unavoidable but can be addressed. Since motility or peristasis, which moves intestinal contents in a coordinated fashion, is diminished a mild stimulant laxative is needed to encourage movement. An osmotic laxative also helps to add fluid to the stool to make it easier to pass. ...Read more

I have started to use bcaa's in powder form during my workouts. Are there any side effects? I am getting some joint pain and really bad constipation

I have started to use bcaa's in powder form during my workouts. Are there any side effects? I am getting some joint pain and really bad constipation

Proper fluid intake: Bcaa are isolated Amino Acids and they can cause constipation. Watch fluids especially around training sessions. You need to take in extra fluids since the aa's tend to harden the stool. I haven't heard of their causing joint pain. Try adding omega fish oils to see if this eases the joint problem. Also try lifting lighter for a while. ...Read more

Having a pain pump implanted for life. Now will all the side effects go away? Constipation, and feeling drugged. Also will urine retention go away to

Ask your doc!: I don't mean to be rude but your questions should have been asked prior to agreeing to undergo procedure. The answer depends upon what's being pumped in. If narcotics or opioids, then no one ever gets over constipation (sorry!). Good news is that you can develop tolerance to sedation ; feeling drugged. Urinary retention is problematic as it can also be due to enlarged prostate in add'n to opioids. ...Read more

Just started on synthroid (thyroxine) (finally!!!) how long before symptoms improve (cold intolerance, brittle nails, hair falling out, constipation? What side effects should I watch for or expect? How long before dose increase?

Just started on synthroid (thyroxine) (finally!!!) how long before symptoms improve (cold intolerance, brittle nails, hair falling out, constipation? What side effects should I watch for or expect? How long before dose increase?

I usually advise: My thyroid patients that it may be SEVERAl WEEKS for them to notice a "difference" and THAT is when I re-check the tests at 2 weeks to begin with!
The "cold intolerance " is usually the first to "respond"
BE PATIENT!!! It may take several visits before your problem is "sorted out" Hope this helps!
