Common Questions and Answers about Zelnorm and serotonin

zelnorm

I have had an episode of Atrial Fibrillation in the past and I have had PVC's and PAC's for years. I am afraid that Zelnorm might bring on an arrhythmia. On the other hand, if Zelnorm would work for me it would be a Godsend. I have already had three anti-reflux surgeries and want to avoid any more. Thanks!
He said well you are too young for surgery (I am a 40 year old woman) so take the Senna's and Miralax every day for the next 3 months and we will follow up then. So now I am taking both of these laxative forms and fiber like crazy and I am still filling up. The only way I can move my bowels was to drink the solution that most people use before a colonoscopy. It was always a hit or miss.
From what i have read, people with C have lower serotonin, and it can cause the constipation, the drug zelnorm inhances this and that is why it creates the gut to move faster. Then they have another one for D, and it is suppose to block the serotonin, but has been taken off the market because it constipated people tooo much. I would just like to find a happy medium ... as i am sure all of you would as well. I have been eating a bland diet for three weeks now, and i am sooo sick of the food.
celexa, lamictal, wellbutrin xl, cymbalta, restoril, seroquel, protonix and zelnorm. Also I was on Depo Provera for 17 months which really added to my weight gain. I've been off this drug since December 05, still haven't gotten my period back and am still gaining weight. I also take pain meds when my fibro acts up. I workout with a personal trainer and having been going to the gym 3-4 times a week for a month and really working out hard and i gained 10 more pounds.
'' There are also serotonin-receptor drugs like the recently approved Zelnorm, for constipation-predominant symptoms; and Lotronex, for diarrhea-predominant symptoms, which was reintroduced late last year after being taken off the market in November 2000 because of links to adverse reactions and some deaths; last June the Food and Drug Administration reapproved it but with restrictions on its use.
Say a Prayer for me.... and I've been hoping for you too! Try the Zelnorm, it replaces Serotonin in the body and helps put liquid into the colon. Take care and I'll keep praying for your well being.
But yes, you are not alone. Everything you say about it is like I am reading my own thoughts and experiences and I have never found anyone who understands it. I have seen about 9 doctors-of varous specialties-and none of them have answers. I have noticed that stressful situations can make it come on. Originally it started with only when I was lying down-this lasted for about 6 mo.
