Constipation

I am taking 2 teaspoons of ESorb twice a day because of my osteoporosis and I have stopped Fosomax after 6 years of treatment. I am extremely constipated, which I have not been before. I drink 8 10 ounces glasses of water a day. All of my bread is whole wheat which I make so it is pure whole wheat. I eat at least 5 veggies a day and three fruits a day. I eat meat sparingly. Help!

Re: Constipation

A suggestion.

Try drinking those ''smoothie'' liquid yogurts. I drink 1 - 2 of them daily and it REALLY helps.

Re: Constipation

I have had constipation issues most of my life even before I started E-zorb so I doubt that E-zorb has any effect. I find that Miralax daily ( l heaping teaspoon in juice) keeps BM's comfortable. You may need to adjust the dose depending on your needs. I only take the maintenance (1 teaspoon daily) of E-zorb. I divide this into twice a day (1/2 teaspoon) each. I have been on E-zorb for 4 years now. Two year ago I went from osteopenia to normal and this summer will be getting another bone density test. I will report the results to this board then. Buy the drug store brand of Miralax, much cheaper and works the same.

Best of luck to you. Let us know how you are doing.
