2 weeks ago I went to a GI doctor and was put on Sulfasalazine.
Within those 2 weeks, I have noticed some changes in my uh... bathroom habits.
For one, I haven't been constipated like I used to get. Which is a good thing!
On the downside, I am visiting the bathroom a lot more frequently than before. Sometimes right after I eat!
Is this normal? Does anyone else have this problem? Is it safe to take antidiarrheal medicine?
I've also been getting headaches. I almost never get headaches! But lately it feels like the top of my head is going to explode :(
