I take several prescriptions, but am having horrible gas, bloating and pain and was going to take the activated charcoal, but wasn't sure how close together I could take them. I know if taken too close together the charcoal will absorb my other meds before my body can. TIA
Sounds like you should be adding some Greek yogurt, that has live bacteria in it. Adding greens and maybe a probiotic to your daily regimen would help with the gas and bloating and help clear out your bowels while taking these meds that will slow down your system.
