Okay so I was started on ored by my GI after my small bowel results came back on the 10th. I was to be at 40mg for a week then 20 for a week then 10 for a week the 5mg for a month. Saturday the 18th I started at 20mg. The week I was at 40mg I felt better now tha Ive been at 20mg Im getting what can be only describe as constipation or gas pains/cramps in my small intestine area. Would going form 40 to 20 make that big of a difference? I have a call in to my GI to see what he thinks but I want to go back to the 40 for a bit and maybe taper off slower. I dont know. Any help or suggestions?

Hi Final I find 40 was great for me and I did go very slow tapering if it isn't working tapering fast slower sure would help I would think maybe see your GI or call the office and ask if you could stay on 40 longer. Best Wishes to you and hope you get better relief.lol gail
