Customer Question

Customer: Hi. Im ***** *****
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Well I am 6 weeks pregnant and I suffer from chronic constipation. I have been taking Amitiza prescribed by my doctor with dulcolax laxatives about 1-2 times a week. Since I learned about the pregnancy 2 weeks ago I stopped both and switched to colace. Im seeing my OB/Gyn on 12/28 but I feel so sick since i havent had a proper bowl movement. I wanted to take the dulcolax laxative but Im not sure if its safe.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to OB GYN Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: yes
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
