Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

Normally this both drugs are prescribed when it is suspected that your bowel movements are sluggish and there is some disturbance with your digestive system.

The routine treatment is advised for about 4-6 weeks maximum.

You should be fine with this in that treatment period.

Along with this please do following which should be helpful.

>Maintain active life,do some regular exercise like walking
> Avoid pain killer medications
>Drink plenty of liquids
>Take more of vegetables and fruits
> Avoid spicy foods and maize products.

In spite this measures and drugs taken you do not feel well,then you need to consult some doctor may be another family physician or physician and do as per his advice.

Wishing you good health.

Regards,

Dr.Pragnesh
