: Hi, has any one seen the news on lately? I think it was on yesterday or the day before. I was out after I had a colonoscopy asleep, but my Friend called me and told me it was on the news about some sort of side effects or recall?? I am not on it, but for the people that take it, it may be worth checking out. CP

Hi CP,
You didn't tell us about the results of your colon exam.I hope you made out OK!!!

There was an article in the local news paper and it said,
"The drug Lotronex sometimes causes severe intestinal side effects some requiring surgery -so stop taking it at the earliest sign of a problem.
The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday it had ordered Glaxo Wellcome Inc. to attach to every Lotronex bottle a plain-English pamphlet explaining the risk.
At least 19 women have suffered the side effects -either a potentially life-threatening intestineal inflammation called ischemic colitis or severe constipation." The Post and Courier,Charleston,SC
,Friday, 8/25/2000.

So, I guess the complains you women have been
having are valid.It sure is worth checking out!!
God Bless---Harry
