Ingredients Constipation

Heather Says:

Hi all I'm hoping someone can answer this. My husband has had a life long battle with stomach issues causing him to be in the bathroom constantly. He's been prescribed lortabs in the past for injuries and such and because it causes constipation his battle is nil to none! But of course if you don't have to be, you don't want to stay on a prescription like that. If I knew what the cause of the constipation was in them perhaps he could just take that and be able to have a normal life since the doctors don't seem to be able to find the cause of his bathroom issues.

Hello, Heather! How are you?

It is the narcotic in it that causes constipation, it is a very common side effect of them. The FDA also warns that they carry the risk of being habit forming and could cause other side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth.

What else has he tried?

Hi Heather,

I guess you really have a difficult problem. I think your husband needs this Digestic from Mimonis which is good for constipation problems. It is also good for colon health so it is worthy to use. I have tried it and it does a very good result.

Try a new drug called Linzess i take narcotics daily and had bad constipation this took about a week to start working good .Once it starts you may go 3 times a day which is not bad it also soften your stools,works great for me.don,t stop taking it or you will get constipated a few days to a week later it's one pill in the morning 30 minutes before you eat or take med's and no antacids before hand.
