Hi all, I am new to posting on this forum but have posted on the fibromialgia forum on a few occasions.
My problem..... I started taking Lyrica 100 mg twice daily a few months ago.....I also take oxycodone 15 mg 4 times a day as well as 1 mg clonazapam to sleep and 5mg paxil. Since adding the Lyrica I have developed chronic constipation and have been taking a stool softner or senocot with little success. I am not new to taking narcotic pain medication.....have taken it daily for approx 5 years and did not experience constipation prior to adding Lyrica to my mix. I have tried the added fiber and increased fluid intake route with no luck! I like Lyrica...it has helped tremendously so don't want to give it up but I feel so worn out lately and believe that the chronic constipation may be causing this. Does anyone have any suggestions? Does anyone else experience chronic constipation and what do you use?
