Customer Question

I am 62 I have had Chrohn's a long time. I am a colon cancer survivor 16 years. I have a colostomy bag. I have been taking Delzicol 400 MG Been feeling fine. However, when I got a renewal for these pills, these batches look different. they are in a clear capsule, 4 pieces of pills in each capsule. Shortly after taking these pills I have been having problems. Feeling nauseated, no throwing up. Stools are darker than usual. Parts of the pills re in the stool. Please advice Thanks

the Delzicol could be causing upset stomach.

I hope you are taking it with food and not with an empty stomach

are you on a stomach acid reducer? omeprazole? these stomach acid reducers often can cause lower acid levels in your stomach

and this can cause your food to not be digested well.

the Delzicol can cause upset stomach as well.

ginger can help with mild nausea.
