I have been on this medication for about 2 weeks. I am serious issues with constipation. Have not take the absorption pill yet, hopefully that will help. Would like to know what I can do about the bowel issues.

I have been on this medication for about 5 days now. I cannot deal with my stomach issues I have been having everyday! I am not taking this anymore. Anyone else taking something that's working with less side effects??
