Injection for constipation anyone had this yet?

I have constipation from pain meds and feel sick. Has anyone tried the new med yet? I'm trying everything else but feel really sick today and fear I may need to go to ER for possible obstruction. I've been out of the medications loop for awhile and heard of a new injection for those on heavy duty narcotics. Charry

  • I have heard of it but know no one using it as of yet. Have you tried any of the stool softeners, along with miralax or some other similar product? An enema could help get things going as well.

    But it was put in my drip bag I think.
    I use 3 colace and 2 senokot. when times get tough and that usually works overnight. If you've got a real long memory. I've used unusual things in the past. (O.K. weird!) 12 to 14 dried prunes will get you back regular.

  • Charry,
    Do you know the name of it? I know what you mean though. I get so dang plugged up sometimes, I hate it! When times get bad, I use those liquid glycerin suppositories. Each dose is in it's own little bulb applicator, 4 to a package. For me they work 10 times better than the solid suppositories. I also take colace on a regular basis. Well, hope you get it out and get to feeling better!
  • I believe you may be asking about "Relistor". Metalneck suggested I look at using it early on when I was having some bad issues with constipation.

    I did find something else that works...by accident! I had taken Miralax for three days straight and nothing was helping. We had a report of a plane crash in my area where I had to respond. We were out in the heat, so I guzzled a purple Gatoraid. I'm assuming the electrolytes in the gatoraid reacted with the miralax because within 30 min I was "OOS" (Out of Service) on the toilet!
