Hello and welcome to JustAnswer,
can you please tell me your heart drugs....
I believe you listed them in a previous question which I can not view...
and a list of possible side effects of lyrica CAN BE FOUND HERE.
as you can see.... some minor issues for some people with constipation and weight gain.... nothing major.... but be sure to check the full profile.
I am on the following. Ecorin 75 mg noctre, Clopidogrel 75mg noctre,Rozavel 10 mg noctre,Losartan 25 mg twice a day,Carvedilol 3.125mg a day
I am concerned about constipation, since I am just recovering after surgery for haemorrhides
the medicines you are on have no interaction with LYRICA.... you will be fine.
The literature found with the pack says that I may encounter allergic conditions such as swelling in lips, face etc. Mostly my concern is the constipation factor
every single medicine on the planet has those allergic reaction warnings...... very rare to have a true allergic reaction to lyrica.....
if you are concerned about the constipation issue you may want to take a daily dose of metamucil.... try to do it in the middle of the day or at some point a few hours after taking your medicines....
Can I safely take it then? How about the constipation
that should prevent constipation problems.
can you safely take what?
and the metamucil IS for the constipation.... to prevent it.
what is the dosage for metamucil
yes, you can.
the dosage for metamucil is variable because it is not a medicine like we think about medicine....
it is a bulk forming laxative that passes through your body without being absorbed and it pulls water into the colon thereby loosening the stool....
but the typical way to take it is on teaspoonfull of the metamucil in 8oz of water twice a day.
Even any other laxative may be effective, isn't it?
ok Thanks Doctor.
but the metamucil actually has other beneficial effects, like on cholesterol.... and it the most benign of all of them.... many laxatives are for short term use only..
you can take metamucil once a day for years and it will do you well.
