i was on calcium supplements but stopped taking them after starting on valium to taper off ativan. i thought it was either the calcium or the valium. i still have the problem. i am also agoraphobic and don't get much exercise. also i am diabetic. i have tried everything, drinking alot of water, higher fiber diet, metamucil but my gastro told me to stop the metamucil as he said it "slows everything down" i am not gassy, just bloated. i have heard terrible things about zelnorm and besides not being able to afford it as i have no insurance, i am afraid to take it. prune juice has too much sugar for my diabetes so i eat other fruits in moderation.
ps i am eating more foods with calcium and taking a multi-vitamin with minerals
