I'm new to this medicine and I do have high blood pressure. when is the best time to take this medicine and how long does it take to work? And I have a upper hernia., it kinda bothers me how this might affect it.i know that sounds silly.
Have been taking Amitiza for several years for IBS and have suffered with the gassy side effects. Had pelvic organ prolapse surgery in November and since then have had even more problems with gas. I am at my wits end with this.
I only took Amitiza for 4 days and had handfulls of hair fall out. Now 2.5 months later and still not seeing regrowth. I also experienced a change in the texture of my hair; it used to be curly and full now straight and limp. Will it ever go back to normal?
