when metformin was used for my diabetes my complete metabolic panel was normal but sitagliptin was added and my kidney function started getting abnormal. I stopped taking metformin per my md and 3months later my kidney functions got worse. lactic acid level also went up.

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
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.
