Hello All. I'm really new on the panel and I'm searching for help. I was sincerely touched when I found this panel. You are all in my prayers. In the last two weeks I have not been able to have a BM. My doctor gave me some samples of amitiza 24 mcg. I've been taken them 2 per day for the last 4 days - One at night and another in the A.M. With the 1st tablet I had a BM. I have not had another BM since. It doesn't seem that I'm having any normal digestive sounds or movements. I don't even have the urge to have a BM. This has only been happening to me for the last couple of weeks. I've had several pressing problems to occur at the same time, causing tremendous stress. Sometimes it's so bad that I realize I'm actually feeling panic. In any case I'm not sure if I should continue on the amitiza. I'm not experiencing any serious side effects. Nor am I experiencing any pain. I’m praying that my system will somehow get jump started and begin to work again. I’m not sure where to go from here or what questions to ask. Please help.
Thank you so much for responding. I've been adding lots of fiber and water to my diet. Fruits (grapes, apple with the peel, peaches). I'm having a bowl of total cereal each morning. I’ve experienced constipation sometime ago where I had a really hard time passing the BM. Once it was out my system went back to normal. I'm trying really hard to manage my stress level. My husband expects me to just stop thinking negative. It's not easy.
