Passing Parrasites

I've been taking Linzess for a few months now and I must say it gets the job done. Sometimes after taking Linzess I have diarrhea. I've noticed that when I do have diarrhea I pass parasites! Has anyone else experienced this? I have detoxed before with natural herbs and didnt pass a thing. I know Linzess itself kill off parasites but there is def something in it that pushes them out. Has anyone else experienced this? ## I’m taking linzess About three months. And I have had leaky gut whenever I take it two days. Three times I’ve had leaky gut Had pads on and it was covered with parasites , disgusting.! What does this mean? Are they dead or alive???? ## Hello christy, It makes sense to me that it would be a lot easier to pass a dead parasite than to pass a live one sinc...

Gentilax Tablets

IM LOOKING FOR THIS LAXITIVE CALLED GENTILAX IN IRVING TEXAS I KNOW ITS FROM MEXICO BUT I'M ASSUMING IT'S HERE TOO. ## Actually, it isn't regularly available here in the U.S. anymore. Gentilax contains the active ingredient Phenolphthalein and it is being removed from the market in over the counter products due to the fact that it has been found to be carcinogenic. Learn more Phenolphthalein details here. However, there are many available that are safer to use and really, the best one of all is just to increase your fiber intake, via your diet or the use of supplements. What others have you tried? ## Trying to locate a store in San Diego California that sells this laxative as it is the only laxative that I find work for my situation. ## Theres a store by my house here in Chi...

Gentilax Laxative

can i take gentilax if im pregnant for consipation? ## Hi miriam, According to a clinical trial posted on PubMed, "phenolphthalein treatment in pregnant women associates with a higher risk for Hirschsprung's disease in their children, but this finding is only a signal which needs confirmation or rejection in other studies." NOTE: this drug is labeled under Pregnancy "Category C" meaning - Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks. With all that said, I would probably consider some (natural) dietary options for treating constipation as opposed to any prescription medications. Just to p...

when to take gentilax

Can I take gentilax in the morning? ## Hi Maria, From what I could gather, Gentilax contains the active ingredient Phenolphthalein. Apparently there is no specified time frame that one should be taking this medication. So it sounds like you can just use it as needed. A recommended oral dose is 1 to 2 tablets, however its effects are said to be cumulative by increasing or decreasing the amount you take. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Phenolphthalein Details I hope this helps! ## Maria: The active ingredient of Gentilax is phenolphthalein. It usually produces a bowel movement in 6 to 8 hours. So if you were to take a dosage at say, for example, 8 am in the morning you could be having a bowel movement as soon as 2 pm or more likely around 4 pm in the afternoon. ## I tak...

On Linzess for a week, NOT "Working" - HELP!

Hi all! I'm new here, but not new to constipation... However, I only got my first *prescription* medication to treat it a week ago when my new PCP finally related enough to my digestive woes and the frustration that comes from years of living through the futile cycle of Miralax, MoM bombs, evil teas, and throwing my hands in the air. She gave me samples of Linzess (low and high dose) and thoroughly educated me on how to take it properly, along with a fair warning to remain near the bathroom those first few days. Honestly, I was pumped! And I know beyond a shadow of a doubt I've taken, and stored, this medicine correctly because I was all in on making this work, as gruesome as those first days might be. But alas, radio silence. I started with the low dose a week ago (a Wednesday)...

Prucalopride makes me very hungry all the time

Is anyone taking prucalopride resolor? Im just worried because since i started it four months ago, i feel very hungry all the time even 10-15 minutes after a meal. Is anyone using having the same experience? help ## I have been on prucalopride just 6 days 1mg. I do not feel hungry nor as yet have I had a result. I have CC for along time. Does any one know how long the time factor before i can increase to 2mg? ## Resolor, which contains the active ingredient Prucalopride is used to treat chronic constipation. Increased hunger and appetite is not listed as a side effect, however, it does have an effect on the brain chemical seratonin, just as many antidepressants do and most of them do cause increased appetite and weight gain. Its common side effects are listed as: headache, abdominal pai...

Can Miralax Raise Blood Pressure

I've never had a Bp issue and since taking miralax for a week for constipation my bp was 166/104! Could it be the Miralax? ## I double checked the side effects, both the consumer and professional listings, but I didn't find anything about it causing hypertension. Learn more Miralax details here. However, I think you should consult with your doctor for an exam and further testing, because while it isn't listed a side effect or reaction, other users have reported experiencing this from Miralax and their BP went back to normal when they stopped using it. Did you have any other unusual symptoms? ## No I haven't noticed anything. I stopped using the Miralax yesterday, increased my potassium and magnesium, drank lots of water, and cut out sodium. Today my Bp was 157/92..... I...

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...

Saline laxative / milk of magnesia positive drug test

Does saline laxative cause a false positive drug test? Also, can milk of magnesia cause a positive drug test? ## Can milk of magnesia test a false positive in a drug test for alcohol ## I think it's highly unlikely since milk of magnesia and similar products are basically a form of magnesium (a mineral). Did you take anything else (OTC or otherwise)? What kind of test was it? Urine, blood, etc? ## Yes, I've failed 2 tests in 3 weeks and the ONLY thing I've taken is magnesium. I passed previous screens but after I started taking an over the counter magnesium daily I've failed twice. My doctor and pharmacist said it wasn't possible but it's the only change in my diet.

Rebamipide best taken at?

is Rebamipide is best taken with meal or with our meals? ## Need to know if Rebamipide is Prescription Drug or an OTC? ## I didn't find any specific instructions listed, but since it is supposed to help GI problems, it is probably best to take it just before a meal, unless your doctor instructs otherwise. NIH studies list its typical side effects as possibly including constipation, bloating, nausea, and vomiting. Victior, it may vary depending on where you live. Can you post back with your general location?

took 2 Linzess capsules by accident

Hello. I forgot I had taken a pill earlier and just took another, will this hurt me? I have been on this medication for a while and just totally forgot I had already taken one. Thanks! ## Were you ok in the end? I'm getting tired of it not working and am considering doubling my 290 dose so I'd like to know what you experienced... ## A single occasion of a double dose could possibly mean an increased risk of it's typical side effects in that moment; but I have my doubts that anything serious or long term would manifest as a result of this one time mishap. However, I too would be interested in hearing how things turned out for you Liz? Hopefully all is good! Have any other patients here had a similar experience on Linzess? For any newcomers on this medication, I see there are ...

Itching and Rash Treatment

I started taking Linzess in early August and around the end of August I broke out with a rash and had severe itching and had to go to a dermatologist. She thinks I had a allergic reaction so I am taking the linzess twice a week. Its not working as well as before, but I was miserable for a month with the itching. ## Hello, Lulu! How are you? The problem is that even just taking it twice a week may not be safe, if you are allergic to it, because such reactions tend to get worse with time. Have you consulted an allergist or immunologist? That might be a good idea, in order to get a better idea of what's going on. ## Thanks Verwon, I will talk to my doctor about seeing a allergist. I am allergic to aspirin, penicillin, so I need to check into this. again thanks! ## My body itches me and...

63 year old bowel movement issue and bloating stomach

Hi, I am 63 old male, have constipation issue. My stomach is bloated and gas doesn't release at all. I have no other health issue, don't take any medication. Took endoscopy, colonoscopy, ultrasound tests and they came negative. This issue exists for a year now. Please offer some solution. Thank you Ram Chennai ## Hello, Ram! How are you? Are you on any medications? What types of foods do you eat? How much water do you drink each day? ## The best and safest remedy is lots of water (I try to drink 100 oz. per day) and exercise. You may not want to hear that. I definitely have to fight this battle as well. This was the only solution that worked. Also eating an apple first thing in the morning helps as well.
