Re: Lexapro & Constipation
Hi Bell Jar,
I take Lexapro also. After a few weeks, I was constipated too. Just some. No diahrea
though. We eat lots of salads and veges and fruits and whole wheat bread (2 gm fiber). But that still did not help too much. Here comes the crude part: I used to go everyday. But then I started only going ever 2nd or 3rd day. Did not like that.
Next time I went to my dr., I told him and he gave me a prescription medicine to help make me more regular. I am supposed to take it everyday. I sometimes miss a day, 1 - 2 times per week. But that is ok, it still works pretty good. It is called Enulose, 10 mg. and is a liquid. I tried a stool softener, and all that did was make my stomach and bowels hurt and did not make me regular!
You might ask your dr. for something like that. Hope you feel better Wannabe
