I get a lot of wind and with a fair amount of straining I might go 15% of what I would consider a normal bowel movement. I don't know if I am taking it at the wrong time of day or what but I need help.
I suggest that you get in touch with your physician. After reading dosage information provided here at drugs.com, it looks dosages can be titrated (as long as you don't start having diarrhea).
HOWEVER, as I said, you need to coordinate this with your doctor so that both of you are in agreement with a dosage change. He/she also needs to know in case you end up hospitalized (for any reason) and unable to give the medical personnel medication information. The doctor will have a current medication list and dosage schedule to provide the hospital in case no one in your family is available to provide it.
