Discussions that mention nifedipine

Bowel Disorders board

I've been dealing with a chronic fissure with a "tag" that gets inflamed. I'm using nifedipine ointment with some improvement. Is is possible that your abdominal pain/bloating is from a change in diet? In an effort to ease the discomfort of fissures many people increase fiber/change their diet, which could trigger the symptoms you described. For me, I found that additional fiber actually made thing worse. What has helped is taking Miralax. Good luck! Lynn
