Constipation With Norco

123456789 Says:

I took norco for a week because I had surgery and I found that I didn't have any bowel movements and then I found that I was constipated so I stopped taking them. The last time I took one was at 8:30 in the morning yesterday 1-10-17 and I drank a bottle of magnesium citrate, a little bit of prune juice, I took stool softeners, and an enema and nothing worked until this morning 1-11-17. I haven't ate because I feel nausea. I have been drinking lots of water and some Gatorade now and all I have been doing is laying in bed because I feel weak and sick. When will I be back to normal? Will I be constipated again?

I had the same problem. I would drink glasses of prune juice...still no bowel movement. Buy some Flaxseed oil. It is a natural laxative. I take 1 tablespoon a day and I am on opiates and I get constipated as well. It is very inexpensive and you can get it on Amazon.
Good luck.

Constipation can be a normal side effect of opiate narcotics, as reported by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth.

Things should return to normal, once you stop taking the medication, but it may take a few days. When I was on pain management years ago, I found that fiber supplements really helped a lot.

Are you on any other medications?
