Meds are for anxiety. He experiences severe abdominal pain and discomfort. He also smokes. He has been on this treatment within last 2 years for about 10 months. Does well in the summer months. Was prescribed these meds again about 6 weeks ago. What can anyone recommend.
I agree with Laurie on this. If he does well in the summer it may be because he is out & about more & doing more, where as winter months tend to make us a little lazier. This can cause the bowels to not be as motile. Be sure he drinks enough water, & if he is constipated a dose now & then of milk of magnesia will help. I find this to be very helpful taking pain meds for chrontic pain. My doctor agrees, this is a good answer for me. What it does is put more water into the colon to produce softer stools. I hope this helps... Mary
