Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 years ago):
I was told by all my doctors after major surgery(while I was using pain medications and my regular medications like phenobarbital and valium for epilepsy) to take Miralax three times a day. I am a very small person but have always had problems with constipation but since taking Miralax I can not walk nor put on apair of shoes because I am suffering from extreme swelling and edema in my lower legs,ankles and feet. I am stopping it immediately and will never use this dangerous medicine again. My Mother is supposed to use it before her surgery for bowel prep; but, I willl not let her use Miralax ever.
From this study (2 years ago):
I am also taking tramodol 3 times a day and naproxen twice a day; and amitriptvline once at night-to help with any nerve twitches and stop stiffness and worse pain when awaking/getting up in the morning. Of course one of the side effects of all these cause constipated, i just want to know if taking a constipation tablet-well bisacodyl, will help me go to the toilet normally without giving me bad diarreah.
From this study (4 years ago):
I take Keppra for recently diagnosed seizures and its side effects list is about the same as my MS symptoms list. Very confusing.
