Body aches , esp backache is common side effect with Tadalafil . It should be fine in a day or two Next time either try 10 mg or some other salt like Udenafil . You can take a pain killer in the interim

Hi! I went to the Urgent Care yesterday because I was having some stomach cramps, back aches and spotting and I am currently in between periods. After taking a urine sample, doing blood work, and getting an x-ray of me the doctor there determined that I had severe constipation. The treatment was to drink 32oz of Gatorade mixed with 238g of Miralax and take two Dulcolax pills within an hour of drinking the mixture. He told me to do this for two days, however now i am not pooping out anything but liquid. It feels like I m peeing instead of pooping. Should I stop taking the laxatives?
