Hi. My son is 21 months has seizures and is taking Kepra. Recently, we had to try Miralax for constipation and can't help but to at least question, could Miralax be making his seizures more frequent and a lot worse? Does anyone have any info that could help us? Thanks
I have used Bupropion for 4.5 years. This week my psych and I agreed to raise dose from 150 mg to 300 mg. Three days later I have loose bowel. Have others had this experience? Is this likely temporary?
Hi. Just want some resolution and advice. The linzess 145 mcg works great but if I poop later that day the movement is harder to pass so I started to take the miralax again to hopefully keep the stools soft in the evening. No problems at all in the morning just the evening if I have to poop again.
