... limited diet and sensory problems. He stays constipated and what little stool passes is extremely thick. When he is given 17 mg of the polyethylene glycol it takes about a week to start then he has diarrhea and cramps all day for up to 2 weeks after stopping medication. I worry about his discomfort and stop medication against the advice of the dr for fear of dehydration. I was told this can not happen and to give him the medication regardless of the frequent diarrhea. Is this correct information and what would you guys suggest as an alternative?
