Hi Sarah,
Welcome to HealingWell! :-)
I'm sorry to tell you but dizziness is on the "serious" list of side effects for Zelnorm. You should stop taking it. I took Zelnorm for several months and I never felt dizzy. I did lots of research before taking it and everything stated to cease taking the medication and consult a doc if dizziness occured. Most common side effects are diarrhea with cramping and headache. Even those shouldn't last more than 2-5 days.
Really, you should stop taking it and call your doc with your symptoms.
Take care.

It says to stop taking it if diarrhea is together with  bad cramping,dizziness,abd pain ,fainting of which I have only slight dizziness...But thank you I will contact my Doctor,I feel so much better and hate to stop taking Z if the dizziness goes away
I must add  that dizziness was not on the serious list only if with the other symtoms (I guess thats why we have Doctors )
