Salagen and Constipation...
« on: August 20, 2009, 03:53:00 PM »
I started taking Salagen about a week ago, and I can tell it is working. Not for a long time, but it is working. I also noticed that I am constipated for the last few days. I am wondering if it is a side effect of Salagen. Did anybody have constipation after taking Salagen.
Thank you ,

I take salagen but have not had any problems with fact my problems are just the opposite and I have been diagnosed with IBS.

Hopefully this is just a passing symptom since you feel that the medicine is working for you!

Hi Gail  :)

I don't know if ita an effect from Salagen but I do know that we can dry up anywhere. I also have a dx of IBS and used to swing between 'feat and famine'. Now famine has settled in pretty much all the time and I take senna every night to relieve things.

Plaquenil, Tramadol, VitD + calcium, and SjS can all cause constipation and my doc says taking senna every night is acceptable. In fact she prescribes them for me.
