> > Ok, a not so lovely topic...buttttt...All of these meds cause me major constipation, and as long as I take Omega 3's, every 3-4 days I swallow a good size laxative, do my jobbers, and I feel *amazing*!! Otherwise, I am bunged up for over a week sometimes, and I find my mental health deteriorates. I have tracked this in my journal, and it's true....this is always the same sequence of events. I wish I could get on a long-term antibiotic, with a probiotic, and I wouldn't have this problem! There is one called rifaximin, for IBS, and I am trying to convince my doctor to put me on it.

I have to *go* once every 3-4 days, or else I feel wretched!! My amitriptyline, clonidine, and risperidone certainly can back me up. I use Tylenol 1 (OTC here in Canada) for migraines, regulaly, so that is the nail in the coffin. :(
