Zelnorm Side Effects

Hi, the doctor prescribed Zelnorm for me for my IBS with constipation, and I severe bloating everytime I eat...but now that I have the Zelnorm, I'm afraid to try it because the consumer reviews are not very good. Alot of people complain of severe abdominal pain and severe diarrhea. If anyone has tried it, let me know what you think of it.

Re: Zelnorm Side Effects

Hi Sunshine! I Too Was Prescribed Zelnorm By My Gi Doc. I Took It For About 9 Months. My History Is Very Long And Complicated But I Do Have Cronitc Diarrhea And Lots Of Adhesions From Previous Surgeries. I Was Shocked When I Read The Warnings That Came With The Zelnorm And When I Questioned My Doc, He Said They Just Have To Cover Their You Know What's. He Later Took Me Off Of It And When I Went Off I Ended Up In The Hospital For A Week With An Impaction. My Best Advice Is To Do Lots Of Research And Question Your Doc About How Long You Will Be On It Etc. Good Luck, Let Me Know What You Decide.
