Pervasive developmental disorder...autism...unexplained g.i. Issues with multiple procedures only finding inflammation...prescribed sucralfate after severe vomiting which seemed to help for awhile, but cycle seems to be starting all over again...vomits often after eating
From this study (6 months ago):
severe constipation occurred during taking levofloxacin and continued afterward.
From this study (9 months ago):
I have used docusate sodium stool softener, and it hasn't helped. I hate to think I will have to take laxatives the rest of my life. I used to go daily. I was taking lortab, and xanax before, and they were changed to clonazepam, and norco. After I was put on the meloxicam, oxybutynin, xanax, and lortab is when the problem started, but even then I could go every other day while taking docusate calcium. By the way, your system does not recognize docusate calcium.
