Laxative Overview

Laxatives, purgatives, or aperients are substances that loosen stools[1] and increase bowel movements. They are used to treat and prevent constipation.

linzess weight loss

how long does it take to work ## Hello, Oscar! How are you? Linzess is not actually intended to be used for weight loss, so there is no time frame I can give you for this. It is used to treat symptoms of IBS that are associated with constipation. And while that may cause weight loss, in some instances, it can be dangerous to try to lose weight via giving yourself diarrhea, since it creates the risk of malnourishment and dehydration. Common side effects to this drug may include nausea, dizziness and stomach pain. Was it prescribed for weight loss? ## I just received a sample from the dr to help with my weight loss, however, I am shocked at ALL the side affects from people of.horrible weight gain! I am confused, can you please help explain? ## I have IBS. Been taking linzesss for a month....

Hi! My Dr. Gave me linzess to help with weight loss. HOWEVER, I am reading all the posts about horrible weight gain, I am confused!!!!!!! ## Hello, Twinckle! How are you? This medication isn't intended to be used for weight loss, it's actually used to treat chronic constipation.

Can anyone that's been on it chime in with their experiences? ## Hello, Linzess can certainly be prescribed for the purpose of weight loss! People do not understand how medications can treat multiple...repeat MULTIPLE conditions, diseases and illnesses. Botox is FDA approved to also treat head...

Round orange pill 0805 and AV on the back

Found this pill in my kid's pocket before doing laundry and we want to know what kind of pill it is? ## Hi Tammy, Does your pill look anything like the one depicted in the following NDC link? - 0603-5482 Is the V cursive-like? - If so, this may be the logo for Qualitest (formerly known as Vintage Pharmaceuticals). Is there a score line separating the 08 | 05? Thanks for any feedback you might have on this. I haven't located any other pills that resemble it more closely as of yet. ## It's actually Senna, a stool softener. I was prescribed this after giving birth to my son. I found it in my house a year and a half later and was looking it up online by the numbers and initials when I found your post. ## Found light orange with 0805 one side and AV on the other.Can you tell me w...

Linzess or other Drugs blocking weight loss

I eat very clean, rarely at restaurants. I have been on Linzess (Lazy bowels) for years, been on synthroid (subclinical hypothyroidism) for several months now along with simvastatin for high cholesterol (hereditary). All blood work shows perfect numbers. I have done several variations with my macros monitored by a trainer. I have not been able to drop any weight in 3 years. No one understands, not even the doctors. I am a personal trainer my self and work out 5-6 days a week. I’m about to stop all prescribed meds because I don’t know if they may be causing the issue. I feel like I’ve been beating my head against a brick wall! Any suggestions? ## Synthroid has been known to cause increased appetite, but both the Linzess, and the Simvastatin are known to cause weight los...

sp round white steroid pill

My boyfriend is taking a small, round, white pill, with SP printed on one side and an un scored, blank back. He says they're "legal steroids." Pretty much need to know if I should be dumping his ass. ## Hello, Beebee! How are you? I haven't been able to find a listing for anything that matches this description, so I can tell you that it isn't a U.S. prescription medication. And that is the only way to legally be taking anabolic steroids in the U.S. They are only available under certain very strict medical criteria. This is most likely some type of over the counter product, but at this time, I'm not sure what it contains. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## If it had SP with no o...

controlled constipation relief

I'm a stroke survivor who, post stroke, suffers from extremely irregular bowel movements sometimes going 5 days without a BM, I don't have pain or bloating, I do suffer from acne breakouts ocassionally which is kinda embarrassing for a man in his 50's. Testing provided a diagnosis of 'slow motility', i.e. part of my brain injury from the stroke affected the function of my digestive system) I was prescribed Linzess 290 mcgm daily to address this problem and to restore BM regularity. I only take the medication on Mondays and Fridays as i work from home on those days and my home office is next door to the toilet, otherwise I run the risk of a bowel evacuation at the office which would be humiliating. I take the medication on an empty stomach with a 12oz glass of water a...

Miralax Powder with Strange Odor

I've been taking MiraLAX for over five years now on a regular basis and I've had no problems. My problem now is the last two bottles that I bought had a chemical odor smelled like kerosene. The bottles were fresh I did buy them at Sam's Club but cannot understand why these two bottles had a strange smell even after it was mixed up. I usually drink mine in coffee and there's never been an odor like this before. Has anyone else experienced this? I've had five abdominal surgeries and this is the only thing that helps me but now I'm afraid to buy anymore. Please help me if you can. ## Today our family noticed a similar odor after mixing less than a tablespoon of MiraLax in a glass of water. My daughter who was going to drink it said it smelled and tasted funny. My wi...
