Side Effects Of Colace
Took Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for GI infection. Stopped cause of side effects. Had fecal impaction(needed enema). Switched to Flagyl, w/colace. Will hard stools stop?
Almost 2 weeks on lithium & i feel good. I prolly could use an lil more but I am constipation! i started colace (docusate sodium). Is that a side effect to lithium :|?
