Coincidentally I started making a daily smoothie with benefiber added right when I started the antidepressant. Mainly I was just trying to be healthier and up my fiber intake.
Yesterday we had to take Charlie to a last minute doctors appointment and I didn’t have time to make my smoothie, so I just skipped it and had lunch. After lunch I was feeling a little sick but thought it was the heat, because it’s really warm here. We went to the fair last night and I didn’t eat much. Then when we got home I started to hurt all over and feel so nauseous.
After suffering from this all night I woke up and took a zofran leftover from pregnancy. Well, friends, that was a mistake. Because the issue is that I am having severe constipation from my antidepressant and the benefiber was helping keep it under control.
So, I took four co.lace this morning and drank a glass of juice with benefiber. This afternoon and I still wasn’t feeling better. I haven’t eaten a thing today-just chugging water. I finally gave in and got some du.lcolax from the store and took two. And it started working, probably in combination with everything else. And now I’m reading some pretty terrifying online reviews that have me nervous for the hours ahead.
Suffice it to say, my evening will be spent in the bathroom and my husband has had to take a night off of work.
