She gave me warm blankets and I slept so well!

    My colon is longer than normal which causes severe constipation. This drug works but like the others, the gas and the bloating and distention of my stomach is horrific! Feel like I can't bend over stomach protrudes so bad! Discontinuing use. Was on Amitiza, but made me nauseated so bad I had to discontinue that too.

    Causes extreme bloating and horrific gas. I look like I am pregnant and the noises that come out of my belly are unbelievable. I'll stick with enemas.
