Hello. I have GP (and have had it for 2.5 years) and am currently taking Amitiza. It sort of seems to be working. I can typically have a BM now once a day although immediately afterwards I typically get very nauseas and need to lie down and drink ginger ale and eat saltines for about a half an hour every morning...and then I am fine for most of the day. But now I have been reading some entries warning against Amitiza which makes me very nervous. I tried Reglan once- I never took it again because the severe stomach pains I got from it the first day were so unbearable .
Anyway, my GI doctor has recommended I start taking Probiotics and Miralax. I know there are so many different probiotics out there, can anyone recommend some that are good? I had been taking Miralax (Over the counter)- which was helping- but I recently started getting diarrhea from an ADD med that I started taking and I am nervous about takin the Miralax again. Also- I take Lactaid pills everyday because I am also LI, but is anyone familiar with taking overall enzyme supplements with GP on a daily basis?
Any advice anyone can give on the Probiotics, Amtiza or Enzyme supplements would be greatly appreciated.
