    welcome to spine-health

    the medication will be the cause of this and you need to keep on top of it.

    you don't say how long you have been suffering, but i would advise calling your family doctor for advice as quickly as possible.  i was sent home from hospital with laxatives as i came home on morphine as an addition to other meds that add to this problem.

    it is something you need to address daily while on medication.

    i have added two links below to help new members with information.  there is lots of material to research that will give you the power of knowledge.
