    I have been taking Amitiz 24 mcg twice a day for 4 days with no results I finally took a laxative and stool softer on the 5th day. I was getting desperate. Does this medication work right away or should have I waited a little longer before going back to laxatives.

    My bowel habits have been much more regulated, although there is a strong need to be near a bathroom for approximately 1-2 hours after taking and bowel movements are sometimes explosive and largely liquid. Muscle cramps have increased dramatically.

    Comment:
    I have been on this medication for about 2-3 weeks. I have previously used Zelnorm (with no results) and Bentyl (with horrible side effects). I found the side effect of nuasea is reduced if I take the medication with a large meal or large dairy portion. i am VERY pleased with the results so far.
