Does anyone suffer constipation from their meds


#1

I use to go everyday before meds. Now I go like twice a week if I’m lucky.


#2

I deal with it by using basil mainly although diet helps a little. I also have trouble with water retention which I use a diuretic for.


#3

I have that problem. I’ve been dealing with it by eating large amounts of peanut butter and syrup. I think that might stop working pretty soon, though. I’ve also had luck with frozen vegetables. If that doesn’t work, you might try bulk fiber laxative.


#4

Coffee and tea always be the main cause


#5

I think clozapine is a main culprit


#6

Yes, I have chronic(more than a year) constipation from clozapine. I fix it by taking Psyllium


#7

Whats that…!!!


#8

ispaghula. It is like a powder you put in water and drink it.


#9

Do u take it daily…!!! ??


#10

nope. once or twice a week. Only when constipation is severe


#11

Yes, I’m on three AP’s so, I have a terrible case of constipation. If I don’t go naturally, I take a prescribed dose of Lactulose. It is a very strong laxative that is basically liquid sugar but it works like magic. Sometimes, instead of that, I take two tablespoons of Castor oil, which I can get online.


#12

Citrus fruits are really good for constipation.


#13

I’m not a big fan of citrus fruit. Besides, it does nothing for my constipation.
