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...

linzess prescribed to help with weight loss

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. It can cause diarrhea, which could result in weight loss for some, as reported by the FDA, but it can also cause abdominal bloating and distention, which has caused many to think they were gaining weight on it. 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...

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...

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.

Linzess not working

I have been taking linzess off and on for a few months. The first few times it worked great, but now it just makes my belly rumble, then I have to push to get anything out and it's still hard. ## Hi I agree.The first week I was on linzess it work to well vut it still helped but now that im back on it its been two days and still nothing.. what did you do or why is it my stomach just rumbling but im not going. ## It should be taken as prescribed by your doctor, which is usually daily. Additionally, it needs to be taken with water, on an empty stomach, at least 30 minutes before eating or drinking anything else. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, abdominal cramping, bloating and diarrhea. Does anyone else have any advice or ideas that may he...

how long after you take linzess to work

The 290 gave me severe diarrhea and cramps but lower soaw no bm I tried waiting a day then take again had horrible round hard stool a few of them passed only with manipulation and bleeding so I took same day the 290 and nothing but can feel it there making it difficult to sit or walk. ## I'm sorry, perhaps I am not understanding you. You said you did not have a BM, but also say it gave you severe diarrhea, and diarrhea is having a BM, even though it is runny and likely not your usual consistency. Can you please clarify? Did you make sure to take it correctly, which is a half hour, before eating, or drinking anything else? Diarrhea can be a normal side effect of Linzess, along with nausea, cramping, and flatulence.

Linzess weight gain

I was just prescribed Linzess for my IBS. I am wondering if others on this medicine have experienced wieght gain? ## Actually, since it usually causes gastrointestinal side effects, including diarrhea, it's usually known to cause the opposite problem of weight loss. You should also be informed that some people develop serve, ongoing diarrhea, so you need to watch out for that and contact your doctor if it happens. Learn more Linzess details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I've gained 4 pounds in 3 days since I started taking Linzess. I am on weight watchers so I count points so I know it is not my food intake. I don't usually fluctuate in pounds so I think it's the new meds. I am still taking Miralax but it doesn't seem like either are working. I loo...

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....

Taking miralax after the expiration date

Can you use MiraLax after the expiration date? And how much to use for an adult single use? ## Hi Dani, I haven't come across any specific details pertaining to the safety of this medication after it's expiration date. However, I think it really depends on how long has it been since the product expired? If it hasn't been too long, it might still be functional enough to get the job done, but you're still probably better off getting a new batch if you want to play it safe. Regarding dosing instructions, the usual adult dosing for Miralax is one cap full (approx. 17g) taken once daily or as needed. Apparently the measuring line on the bottle cap itself is supposed to be used as a guideline for taking a single dose (which also measures out to about 1 large tbsp). Lastly, it ...

miralax, pooping

i took a dose of miralax saturday, then another on sunday with no results along with stool softeners that my doctor gave me for post operation. someone told me about a faster acting laxative that i took sunday night and i finally had relief. the problem is it is now wednesday night and i have been going to the bathroom every 2 hours and have loose stools. when will it stop. after every meal also i have to go immediatly. ## At this point, it is just going to take time for it to process out of your body, so things return to normal. It is likely that you should have given the Miralax a longer amount of time to work, some laxatives can take 48 to 72 hours, and if they haven't worked by then, you are told to consult a doctor. The Miralax FAQ on their website even lists that it can take 1...

Round Orange Pill S35

How or what does this web page help or do for parents trying to find out what pills are? I caught my kid with an orange round pill imprinted with S35 on one side and nothing on the other side and our wonderful Internet could not lead me to a page describing what exactly this pill is. They can start making illicit orange round S35 pills and get away with selling it because we don't even know what it is as a legal pill. The next step will be opiates looking like a dark-colored Advil but with coating. Even come in the form of Tylenol but a 50 is placed in capsules. I've seen it. ## There are those of us who can research pill identifications, side effect details, and other information to help people, such as yourself, that are having problems trying to find information on their own....

Constella for constipation causing Diverticulitis

I have been on Constella for 4 days. I take it in the AM 2 hours before eating. I know it is a no, no but I have just one cup of coffee and boom...I have diarrhea. However, it is mostly water without much substance...sorry for the graphics! It lasts for a few hours and then stops completely for the day. I do drink water all day and take a thermos with me when I go out. This repeats itself exactly for the next few days while taking it. I have no feeling of having to go after the diarrhea stops. I also take Restoralx (Miralax) every evening. Constipation has been a battle for me for years and years. I am a senior now. If this pattern persists I will call my doctor. Will this diarrhea taper off? ## Does the diarrhea ever tapper off? I spoke to the doctor and he reduced the dose to every ot...

New Insuance denied my Linzess RX B/C I don't have cancer!

I have been on Linzess for over a year now, and happy enough with the results. I had been covered through Blue Cross/Blue Shield of NC. There was NO problem getting the rx filled. Now I am covered through BC/BS of Minnesota. I received a letter denying the rx stating that I am not eligible because I don't suffer from active cancer pain! What the heck are they talking about?!?! Has anyone else run into this kind of issue with their insurance?? ## Appeal it and they might. Your doctor may have to do a prior auth, but I would fight it. I have before with other meds and other insurance and it works. ## Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I have already appealed and I have still been denied. ## That is very odd, since Linzess is used to treat IBS with constipation, and idiopathic chroni...

Rebamipide Dosage Timing

Is Rebamipide is best taken with meals or with out 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? ## Should Rebamipide be taken before or after meals?
