Suggest Treatment For Constipation, Nausea And Dry Mouth While On Oxycodone
a few different issues.
First, the constipation can be easily dealt with. there are blockers of narcotic effect that do not leave the bowel (relistor and others) and the gut then has zero narcotic effects in it and the rest of the body isn't affected.
So, the question is the constipation. The gut bacteria and gut mobility can be affected for a long time after the drug is gone. I might still try the relistor and if you are on codeine (a narcotic) then it will very likely work.
Then there are many drugs for constipation. These include over the counter colace and it must be taken with sufficient fluid and fiber. There is miralax and other potentially gas producing drugs for constipation.
Finally there is the pain management question. Oxycodone is pretty safe. Aspirin like drugs can have other serious side effects. I do not know which I would recommend. A minimal amount in either case.
cannot say in your particular case
and dangers of narcotics are both dose and time dependent with 30 mg a day or less having a low risk of tolerance or dependence. Addiction is usually going to happen in the first few months or not at all.
You are very welcome.
Then there are many other modalities for arthritic pain. Ignoring ballroom dance, physical therapy to increase range of motion is considered essential. Furthermore incorporating aquatherapy is particularly good for arthritis in closed joints (ankle, knees. not quite as good in hips and spine).
Steroid injections sometimes are helpful.
safe and safe.
Yes that is below the guideline amounts where there are considerations about narcotic consequences.
BUT, more importantly is the systems engineering analysis. If you have a complex system, having prior knowledge of what occurs when you do something to it is quite important. You know that the drug works. The constipation might or might not be the only side effect and you have not tried any of the antidotes for this that are highly safe and effective (movantik and relistor). Any Other Treatment is LESS sure to be anything like as successful.
There are laxitives and then there are laxitives.
The main point is whether they are going to move you toward normal or away from it. Normal dietary consitituents kiwi fruit, prunes and fible foods for breakfast and lots of water, make one more normal. Drugs that really upset the gut (SENEKOT) and act as plain GUT IRRITANTS make things worse.
Removal of a narcotic effect moves the gut back to normal if there are narcotics pushing it to be abnormal.
yes but some laxatives are better and some worse.
SENEKOT will definitely make you addicted to it and have the bowels Not work at all when you are not taking it. Blockers of narcotics will make the bowels back to more normal, as will fiber and fruit.
not the worst
ok, fiber, fruit, kiwi are overall great. The extract of the kiwi MIGHT act as a plain irritant but more likely it is like fiber and bulk and non-absorbed sugars (lactulose0 all are pretty ok.
