Please help.I've heard that Neostigmine can help with constipation and I'm going to the doctor tomorrow and was planning on asking him about it.I trust you guys more than docs because you've all had real-life experiences.Please let me know if anyone has used this drug and how effective it has been and side-effects etc. Any information would really really be appreciated. (Real scared to see doc tomorrow!)Thanks.
