I have been constipated for over 50 years and it is getting worse. Just started taking 2 Amitza a day for 4 days and no results nor any side effects. Any one having no reaction like I?
If so, what are you taking to relieve your symptoms?
Hi there, I just registered onto this forum so I could reply to this! All amitiza threads I find are old.
I have been on and off Amitiza for about
a year now. My side effects have been all over the place. I CANNOT figure out a pattern to why sometimes the side effects are crippling to no side effects at all.
I originally was prescribed 24mg 2x a day. Some days it works amazing, other days nothing at all. I can't figure it out? But what I have noticed that the more effective the drug is, the worse my side effects are.
I almost had to go to the hospital one night the side effects were so bad... but other times nothing at all.
Therefore my advice to you is take it as you were prescribed for 2 weeks and see how your body reacts. What I have gathered from reading forums on Amitiza is that people have all kinds of different reactions. For myself, I now only take the drug (24mg) when I REALLY need it and I have 8mg to take on a more regular basis.
