Good question I was wondering the same thing! My mother has been on Jevity 1.2 cal through a feeding tube for about 7 days now and she has not had a bowel movement. She is not eating much of anything else and we have increased the water we put in the tube but she still has not gone. She has dementia and doesn't always know if something is bothering her or not. I am hoping a little Sennekot will do the trick! Does anybody really know this answer?

My sister is on Jevity 1.2 has has problems with constipation. Miralax powder has helped her greatly. It use to be a prescription but can now be found over the counter. It is available at Costco and retail pharmacy's. Hope this helps! :)

Yes, the FDA does warn that it can cause such side effects in some people that use it, due to its potency. You may also experience nausea, and headache.

Lynn could be onto something, if it is safe for the person and their medical condition, upping their fiber intake can really help with constipation issues.

Are there any questions?

I am on Jevity 1.5 and have been for about 6 years. I have been having a lot of allergies here lately and found out I am allergic to quite a few things. Is there any pork or gelatin in Jevity?
