I had severe belly cramps at 5:00 am and could not have a movement. From 5:00 am til 7:00 am I was on and off the toilet with bouts of nausea. Finally at 7:00 am or so I exploded and evacuated many times during the day. It is now a two days later and I am still passing gas which sometimes has loose bowel particles in it. How long is this going to last. I am afraid to leave the house.
Two pills seems to be an overdose. This is due to the relatively long onset of the drug when taken orally (around 6–10 hours). The effective shall remain for around 16 hrs, however you should please double check with your doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med., hope this helps.
