I went to a new GI doc yesterday and he wants me to try Zelnorm. I told him I alternate and he seems to think I should try it. There's so much going on with the holidays I'm afraid to start it, that I'm going to have massive D.Has anyone who is C & D tried this with any success?Can I take immodium with it if I get bad D?And how long might the D last if it starts?Anyone who has tried this please respond.I also posted on the other board with no response. Thanks, please help,Joyce

Hi!I've been taking Zelnorm for the last 20 days and I have the constipation problem. I'm thinking about stopping it. One day I don't have a bowel movement and the next day I'm going about 4 or 5 times. It's not diarehha but I still feel crampy and very light headed. It also made me feel depressed and just edgy at the same time. Sounds weird but thats how I felt. The worst thing is that I paid 43.00 for the prescription. I know that everybody is individual but I would wait till after the holdiays if you are scared about how you will feel.
