Hello. I have been taking neurotherapy treatment since last 17 days. Also taking prucalopride daily. My bowels are ok. I am not sure what is working - neurotherapy or medicine.

that's good that your bowels are ok.

 

maybe they are both working.

My neurotherapist told me to stop prucalopride in evening. I asked how can we know whether the medicine is working or neurotherapy is working. I am taking prucalopride in morning and evening. Please reply.

well of course the only way you're really going to know if it is prucalopride that is working or the neurotherapy is to completely stop either one or the other and see what happens. 

 

but his plan is a good idea, too.  if you stop your evening dose of prucalopride and you notice that your bms are adversely affected by this, then you'll know that prucalopride was  working.   if your bms are not affected by stopping the evening dose, then you can try stopping the morning dose as well and see what happens.  you did say earlier that  prucalopride was working for you  before when you were taking it.   i think you said you were taking just one dose a day back then. 

 

and, like i mentioned earlier, maybe they both are working.

I did not take prucalopride yesterday night. Still I had bowel movement today. Seems like neurotherapy is working.

yes, but if you took prucalopride yesterday morning then it also could be that the one dose of prucalopride is working too.  you did say that you've taken one dose daily of prucalopride in the past and that it helped. 

 

the only way to know for sure if the neurotherapy is working is to take no prucalopride at all for a few days or so or maybe a week to get it out of your system.

I agree, a few days to a week without.

Could be one dose of prucalopride may be working. I can only know if I stop it completely. I will speak to my neurotherapist today.

yes, but only do this if you really want to.  i would hate to see you get all backed up and constipated if prucalopride was helping and you stopped taking it.  good luck with everything.

that's too bad about the incomplete evacuation.  maybe prucalopride was working after all.  could be too early to tell--don't know.....

i'm sorry you're in such bad shape today. 

 

yes, sounds like a good idea to resume taking prucalopride twice a day like your doctor recommended.  hope you get some relief soon.

I told my neurotherapist not to come tomorrow, Monday and Tuesday. I told him the reason too. I told him that I will be taking my medicine twice a day as advised by the doctor. He has agreed not to come. Will update you.

It looks like the prucalopride is doing its job. The neurotherapy? I'm not too sure about. 

 

I'm glad the medication is working for you. Keep us posted.
