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.

What is meant by being inpacted?

Hi, I know this may sound like a stupid question but I have suffered from Opiate-Induced Constipation for 15 years and have followed several different VA doctors recommendations, none of which really worked or else the VA pharmacy would fill their recommended prescription. My civilian doctor got me approved for Linzess which I have read great things about. By inpacted, I think it means where the stool is backed up and is blocking evacuation but now I am thinking that since opiates cause slow transit of stool through the G.I. tract, that might be the inpaction they are talking about. I have never had a complete evacuation of my G.I. tract (colon), only partial. So which is it? The inpaction around the evacuation point or up through the colon? ## Hello Lartomar, According to Harvard Healt...

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...

How many days should you take Linzess to 1st bowel movement

I am on Linzess 7 days now had 1 bowel movement after 1sst dose of 290 mg Is it save to continue taking it ## Hello, Sheila! How are you? It would be best to follow your doctor's instructions for whether or not to continue it. Most people do experience bowel movements, shortly after taking it, but it does not work for everyone. Have you made sure to take it on an empty stomach, at least a half hour, before eating or drinking anything else? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, bloating, and diarrhea. ## I have been taking 290 mg linzess for15 days and still nothing should I keep taking it

Vomiting after Suprep

I drank the first bottle of Suprep and it began to work right away. I had to drink the second while on the toilet. I got really cold and the shivers started. Then I got nausea. I vomited about an hour and a half after drinking this awful tasting stuff. My question is will it still work for the colonoscopy tomorrow. ## It would be best to check with your doctor to be sure. But have you still been having bowel movements? If so, then it is probably still working. The symptoms you've described can be normal side effects of using it, according to FDA reports, you may also experience stomach pain, abdominal cramping, and dehydration.

can i take MiraLax after the expiration date

Can I take Miralax when it expired on 11-2015? If not, how do I dispose the of contents, down the sink or the toilet? ## Hello, Margie! How are you? Liquids can go bad, once expired and may make you ill, if you use them, as reported by the NIH, so it would be best to dispose of them. As to the method of disposal, you should leave it in the sealed container and dispose of it with your regular household trash. Is there anything else I can help with? ## How long will the laxative Purelax work if it expired 12/15 ## I've never known Miralax to be a liquid so your answer isn't really an answer. Looking to find out if it's still safe to take when it expired over a year ago. Thank you, ## I took some from 2014 and this 2018 and it worked just as usual. In today’s marketing cr...

Round orange pill 0805 and AV on the back

Found this pill in my kid's pocket before doing laundry and we want to know what kind of pill it is? ## Hi Tammy, Does your pill look anything like the one depicted in the following NDC link? - 0603-5482 Is the V cursive-like? - If so, this may be the logo for Qualitest (formerly known as Vintage Pharmaceuticals). Is there a score line separating the 08 | 05? Thanks for any feedback you might have on this. I haven't located any other pills that resemble it more closely as of yet. ## It's actually Senna, a stool softener. I was prescribed this after giving birth to my son. I found it in my house a year and a half later and was looking it up online by the numbers and initials when I found your post.

Jevity 5.1 Side Effects and mucous

Has anyone experienced extreme mucous in nasal passages and throat from using this product. The label says it is suitable for those with lactose intolerance but I seem to be having cramping and constipation and so much phlegm and mucous that I can't sleep nights. It contains milk which can be contributing to the problem. I do have sinus problems but I do not have an infection or a cold. This has been going on since I started the Jevity. If anyone has any info please pass it on to me. Thanks. ## Have you consulted your doctor about it? This is a nutritional supplement product, so it isn't really tested for side effects, as is done for something considered an actual drug, so unfortunately, this site doesn't have a lot of information on it. Therefore, I really think talking to ...

Why can't I find Konsyl?

It's true, I can't find the original formula at all, anywhere. Our pharmacist said they are not making it because people want the orange flavored products. Konsyl Original Formula is the very best product out there, pure and simple, and I can't understand why the Konsyl corporation is stopping production. A very stupid move on their part. ## From what I have been able to find, it is listed as still being available, and has not been discontinued. But yes, some people do prefer the flavored products, however, my mother-in-law uses one that isn't flavored, she just mixes it with orange juice. There are many others that are also available that contain the fiber, without flavoring, they just might be under generic names, rather than Konsyl. The FDA warns that it may cause fla...

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...

Itching and rash

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 owrking 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...

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....

Drinking coffee with Linzess

I have been taken my linzess 290 mcg with coffee every day and then I continue to drink my full cup of coffee. My question is can that hurt me? I just read I should take this med with a full glass of water. Have I cause any damage by taking this med with warm coffee? Maybe that's why It has not been working and I am feeling some abdominal pain. thank you for replying back. ## Hello Tawanna, When taking any medication it is best to administer the medication as it is instructed. Linzess is a medication used to treat constipation and irritable bowel syndrome. According to the NIH this medication contains the active ingredient linaclotide (NDC 0456-1202) which lists Diarrhea, Abdominal pain, Flatulence and Abdominal distension as common side effects.

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 ...

How long before Linzess starts to work?

I was prescribed Linzess for my IBS-C. I have been taking Linzess for two days now and very bloated with no bowel movement. From what I had read, it would work rather quickly, but for me that is not the case. I took one 145 mcg the first morning as directed and 2 of the 145 mcg the second morning and still nothing. How long does it usually take before I will start seeing results. I have the urge to have a bowel movement, but nothing is produced. Any advise will be appreciated. ## Hello, CJ! How are you doing? Has it worked, yet? There's really no way to give a time frame, it can vary from person to person. Some people have good luck with it, some don't. One person posted recently that it was only resting in one BM a week for them. Have you consulted your doctor for advice? ## I ...
