Use of softovac

I am using softovac (bowel regulator) daily night 1 spoon, are there any side effects of forming stones in pancreas etc? ## Softovac is a laxative that contains: cassia fistula 0.5 gm, fennel , ispaghula 2 gm, liquorice 0.25 gm, senna 0.75 gm WIth those ingredients, it is a supplement, rather than a medication and the side effect profiles are not studied for it. The only thing regularly reported is some abdominal cramping. However, you should know that if you use it every night for a long period of time, your body may become dependent on it and if you stop using it, you may be unable to have a bowel movement without it. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Sir, thanks for the reply. As I am using 1 spoon regularly in the night from last 2 years. Last 15 days back I had a treat...

Linzess Patient Reviews

I've been taking Linzess (290mg) since May 8th, 2018 and it has really helped me have a complete bowel movement. Now I'm so glad for this medicine, I should've been on it. I can deal with diarrhea ok, don't like it but it beat not being constipated & not being able to completely empty your bowel properly like it should be done. I suffered from not having a complete bowel movement for 6yrs now, due to the fact that my spinal cord was damaged severely in car wreck damages. This causes my bowels to not function properly like it should and stools were not passing through the rectum. My colon was storing up stools in the rectum. Whenever I have a bowel movement I could still feel stools in the rectum and the urge to go was always there. That feeling that I had to go. This...

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....
