G.I. Problems due to narcotic

Has anyone here suffering from gastroparesis due to opiate? What do you take for it? How long before you regain your usual peristalsis?

Feeling a little better today. Abdominal cramp is still there but not as much. I've been reading the posts here and researching on ways to at least lessen the physical symptoms like exercising, utilizing sauna and taking detoxifying supplements.

Thanks for the input.

Re: G.I. Problems due to narcotic

It's amazing how much has changed since this last post. I don't need to take any form of GI drugs (antacid or promotility) anymore. One of the good things of quitting.

Vanguard, can you tell us how you are doing now? Update please. Sounds like you are off all drugs, is that right?

Re: G.I. Problems due to narcotic

toomany,

Yes I'm off all drugs. My psychiatrist suggested that I stay with Wellbutrin since it "may" curb any cravings (as to what they give for smoking-cessation).

Although Wellbutrin has not given me any adverse effects (other than longer-lasting boner...which is good. Not that I have a problem in that department), I told him that I'm done with drugs.

Thanks for asking.


Vanguard
