I was on Zelnorm for months. Not because I didn't respond to laxatives or because I was SUPER constipated, but because my guts wouldn't regulate. I wouldn't go for a few days and then when I did go I'd have D. My doc said Zelnorm would make things flow regularly and stop the C and D. It did.
BUT, I can't imagine anyone being prescribed Zelnorm who's not constipated at all. If you're pooping everyday you should not be taking Zelnorm. Especially because lots of people get major D at first with it. Sometimes your body will adjust and go to normal, sometimes you don't adjust and have to stop the med, other times you're having a reaction to it and should stop immediately. Either way, I would get a 2nd opinion.
