Lisa, thanks for the info. I’m on day five of 180 mg and so far no constipation…
Marie, I think part of the issue with the constipation is that because of our illness, we don’t move around as much as normal people. Exercise and just moving about help to move things along. I’m not sure where you are physically, but is there any way you can incorporate a bit of exercise into your day?

As the medication seems to be improving my migraines and I purposely avoid being horizontal, I seem to be getting alot more done. With the purchase of a new-to-us couch, it was time to gather all the ‘old’ stuff and rearrange it. Of course, if you’re moving furniture, you have to vacuum - and if you’re going to vacuum the living room, you have to vacuum the kitchen and the study, which are all open, one unto the other.
If you’re gonna go that far, you may as well clean off the counters you’ve left up to the men in your life to keep up with while you were ill. Yeah…that’s right. I had to work the tiny egg shell pieces free from the oven top. Clean all the stuff that magically appears only when a woman approaches kitchen appliances and sinks.
Common sense and dizziness stopped me before I got down on my hands and knees to wash the kitchen floor which, I might add, needs it so badly. Priorities, right?
Add to this the nurse’s call to let me know I could take Beneful, add psyllium and colace to my diet, purchase bran cereal, and encourage me to a strong cup of coffee in the morning, if I don’t poop like a champ without any physical assistance, you’ll hear me scream from where you sit. LOL
