Prednisone, plaquenil and constipation????
Just curious if anyone else has had severe constipation from these drugs?? I had rectal surgery 4 months ago and am still recovering and finding it difficult with the constipation from these meds. I am on Prednisone 10 mgs, plaquenil 400mgs a day, folgard (b12, b6 folic acid) ca supplement, diclofenac 75 mgs bid. I have added a stool softener and also take benefiber 3 tsp daily. My drug fact sheets list constipation as poss side effect, but it also lists everything else, so I just wanted to know of any first hand experience. This all started after I was mainly put on the prednisone. I am thinking that may be the big culprit
