serious constipation issues from my meds

Hi everyone. Serious problem here. I am very constipated from takin anafranil. Ive been on it for like 3 months, and its working great, except this problem...Ive tried everything. flax, prune juice, laxatives, suppositories. The last two weeks, every time Ive went was with the help of laxative or suppository.

Has anyone else had this problem? What did you do? Will I need to switch to another tricylic med?

Re: serious constipation issues from my meds

Hey there, You may want to discuss this with your doc, there are optiosn out there to counter this side effect. If these don't work, there are tons of other medications out there that work well for OCD. Hopefulyl you can stay on your anafranil if it does the trick!
