Ozempic And Constipation

Ruth Says:

I have been on Ozempic 1mg for a few months and have lost 25 lbs. I feel great but struggle with constipation from the drug. Does anyone else have this problem?

Ohmygosh!! Yessss I love Ozempic for my type 2 diabetes. I have lost a good amount of weight. I have so many diabetes problems that Ozempic has helped with.. BUT I freaked out about the Constipation I took Mira lax and then ex lax. I calmed down about it and know I don’t eat junk like I have and I don’t eat as much. I take Metamucil daily and eat fiber drink tons of water. The Constipation is better but still an issue if I don’t drink enough water.. I love Ozempic and haven’t felt better since I got this prescription. My blood glucose is great!!

I take Ozempic & also hv constipation issues, not sure if because of Ozempic or the fact I am on an opioid pain medication. I can tell you I was put on a medication to deal w/constipation & had to try sev diff ones but what has worked wonderfully is Movantik.
There are still a few times I must also take Miralax but very rarely need to do so.

I've been on Ozempic for 10 weeks. At 1 mg now. I eat much less, but have to be conscious about eating enough vegetables. Take a look at your dark, leafy green intake and make sure you have enough

Constipation can be a side effect of Ozempic according to FDA reports. Other side effects may include nausea, headache, dizziness, heartburn, and burping.

Ref: Ozempic Information

Have you tried anything to help alleviate the constipation, such as fiber supplements?

Are you on any other medications?
