I took prucalopride twice yesterday. One dose in morning and another in evening. My bowels are better today. Have told my neurotherapist not to come till Wednesday.

Is the medicine working then? I forgot to mention that I am also listening to hypnotherapy recordings. I think medicine is working. What is your opinion?

i think prucalopride is working because when you stopped taking it earlier, you had incomplete evacuation.

 

of course, you could always stop listening to the hypno recordings and see if that has any effects.

well, that's up to you. it does look like prucalopride is working well for you.   if you don't think neurotherapy is  helping at all then you might as well discontinue it.  you can always start it back up later if things get worse.

Is hypnotherapy working or medicine? I think it's medicine. For first 50 days of listening to hypnotherapy bowels did not improve. Annie please comment.

that's great that you had a complete evaacuation today.

 

sorry i don't know anything at all about the hypnotherapy program.  i don't know how long it's supposed to take for it to work although i would think it should have kicked in after 50 days..  did you get an instruction  book with it?  what does that say  as far as how long it takes to work?

Hypnotherapy program is for 100 days. No specific time frame for effect. In the past it had taken 20 days or so to take into effect. But then that time I was on anti depressants but of different kind then what I am today.

I searched on net. It says prucalopride can be taken long term. I have to meet my GI doc after one week.

My GI doc had told in October that later on slowly he will reduce the prucalopride dose. I have to meet him next week. What if he reduces dose and then I will have constipation problem again. I am worried.

i wouldn't think he'd  want to reduce the dose if it's helping you.  although maybe he wants to see if you can get by with a lower dose.  i forget--did you try taking it just once a day?  if you did, how did that affect you?

well, i would think he'd want to keep you on whatever dose it is that works best for you.
