Thanks for the query

It is unlikely that it is because if the drug as you have been on it for several months prior to it.
The stomach pain could be either gastritis or secondary to constipation itself. I advice you to take Syp lactulose 10 ml at night for the constipation and tab pantoprazole 40 for the pain abdomen, if it still persists or becomes more severe please approach a physician

I hope I was of help
