GOSH stop STOOLING around

GOSH stop STOOLING around

AS some will know I have had RIGHT gut trouble WAS prescribed OMEPRAZOLE that did very good job at making me iller and constipated.

Which brings me to subject of this post TITLE ... anyway I am no longer constipated AND I discovered heavy stools " ones that go with right thump " are very bad for you in long run.

Am sure you know ones " ones have to brace for " lol.

Luckily in the end I did not need laxative as stoping OMEPRAZOLE was enough to return normal function.

But what I did come across was aarticle on laxatives causing neurological electrical disfunction WELL I never knew that.

Was enough for FDA to issue laxative warning on all prescription over counter laxatives.

Guess I will be sticking to coffee of fresh orange juice WHEN am next constipated.

Also after reading FarmerD troubles and my own sudden epiphany ... Could candidas be causing my stomach issues as well.

  • JAS if you've taken lots of antibiotics over the years the chances are that you'll have candidiasis. It's difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to treat. Good luck!
