I remember hearing about a few drugs like this one all meant for the same thing but one or two were really bad and hurt people . I wanted to hear any and all yr remarks on how movantik makes you feel. Taken it for only one day but I am still feeling movement and I had a full tank for a long time. So has it stopped working on anyone after a few uses. I found that with linzess. Anything that you feel is helpful or just different to you. Plz and thank you
Hi, As far as results, it took about 4-5 days for it to work for me and I had to add a laxative. I also had to start over with it. I was too backed up and although I could feel it moving stuff, it wasn't moving out. so did enema to clean out, then restarted on Movantik the next day, with a laxative. It takes a few days I feel to block enough of the opioids from binding to your gut before it starts to produce results, for me at least.
As far as reactions, I get a headache and rough stomach pains but that is it. It's worth the trade of for me. You said you have taken it for 1 day, it will take a few days at first until a lot of opioids are removed from your bowels. Linzess and amitiza didn't work for me at all, not even once.
Hope this helps. Thanks.
