The gas is common in the beginning and honestly can't tell you how long that lasted for me. If you feel that its not working for you then you really need to let your doctor know so he can put you on some other regimine. Not everything works for everybody but I'm sure you already know that. I believe there is a new prescript
ion product that just came out for constipation (Amitza I believe is the name). You may want to ask your doc about
that. I'm sorry that its not working for you, really makes me feel guilty that it works wonders for me. I believe that you will find the right product out there for you to give you some relief. Just be careful with those stimulant laxatives, long term use needs to be brought to your doc's attention since he will probably want to monitor your usage etc.
