Hi there, I don't know what those meds are but the Pronanolo sounds like a painkiller. My husband had an accident just over two weeks ago and has broken some ribs and is on Co-codamol and they stopped him going to the toilet. He recently had a chest infection because of the accident and because he was given antibiotics he started going again.

If I can't go then I use a rounded dessertspoonful of golden linseeds in around a 3rd of a mug of water and soak them for around an hour then drink, this works for me. Some people grind the linseeds down first before soaking them.

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if the medication is causing the tummy ache.

Hope you feel better soon.
