New Medicine Troubles: Graphic Talk (Warning)
Sunday, August 14, 2016
For the last two years, I've had chronic diarrhea. I've been in and out of my doctor's office trying to get it fixed. I go at least five times a day. A bad day has usually been about 9 times. We even bought a bidet on Amazon and I love it. I was on anti-fungals for a while for yeast because my yeast count was excessive. I was on Anti-bacterials for a while. That didn't help. It would all help at first but things would go back to the way they were.
So my doctor took my gallbladder in February. That made things worse. He finally prescribed Welchol. He told me to take 6 a day. After reading about it, I decided to take one. One was all it took! Now I haven't been in the last 24 hours. I know that's actually not bad, but I was waking up all night feeling full, bloated with reflux. Ugh!
I called the Pharmacist who seemed surprised that all I took was one. I can't even imagine what would have happened if I took six!!! So now I am trying prune juice and grape juice to get my to normal. If that doesn't work then a laxative.
Is anyone else on this medication? Any insight?
