Hey Shel! Glad you started the Zelnorm and are getting some help (I think that's what you'd call it).
The D is/was normal as long as it doesn't last longer than a week. Also, it is absolutely normal to feel empty because you are "going" more often. Things should start to normalize. However, I am a little concerned about
The rash, if I remember correctly, can be an allergic reaction. I would call the doc immediately and see what he/she thinks. Don't panic though, as long as your heartbeat and breathing aren't off then it isn't an emergency. But do call the doc ASAP.
Please keep posting.
