This is the first time on the site for me.  I've been struggling with cronic constipation, hemoriods, nausea and low back pain (possibly related, I'm told) for over 15 years.  Up until this point, I've just taken fiber supplements and stool softeners.  Every few years I keep increasing those two things and now I take them all day long. Over the last year or so, my stomach has become increasingly bloated and I never feel like I have a good bowel movement.  I finally decided to take my Dr's advice and try GlycoLax.  I began taking it last week and became very nauseated.  It worked by giving me the best bowel movement in years but the nausea was terrible.  I backed off the dosage and the nausea is gone but so are the bowel movements.  Any one have any suggestions for me?  I seem to get nauseous at the drop of a hat and my Dr. also said I should take Prilosec every morning to decrease the acid in my stomach.  It seems to help but not when it comes to the Glycolax.  Any help you have would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Victoria!! Another Victoria on the site woohoo!!!! Haha

I too get very nauseated easily with both my IBS and anxiety. I think that if you are chronically constipated, your motilty in your intestine will be slow so when you are taking the Glycolax, your peristalsis movement will be soewhat quickened and the movement of this could easily make you feel sick. Do you take any anti spasmodics? I take mebeverine for the spasms, motilium (domperidone) for the nausea and sometimes a stool softener.

I also take ginger tablets from the health food shop, these help with my nausea too.

Hi Victoria,
Welcome to HealingWell! :-)
Have you spoken to your doc about Zelnorm? Also, many of us on here eat Activia yogurt. It really seems to help with regularity.
Reiterating what Victoria already said... Ginger is fabulous for nausea.
