Hi,

Yes, it does.
Although choletsoff is an amalgamation of plant sterols and stanols are "natural," a small percentage of people report bothersome side effects. These include nausea, heartburn or indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, and or decreased sex drive.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I am on Adderall and it has caused some bowel issues. From constipation to diarrhoea, it changes day to day. After a rather gross BM I turned my shower wand on low and used it as a douche. Not an enema, those are not good I have heard. No holding in water. Just in and out. Gently, no discomfort at all. Noticed after my shower my anal sphincter is deep purple. Cause?

I have been suffering a long time with stomach issues, feel constantly bloated and full of wind and I suffer really bad with constipation. I also suffer on a regular basis passing water and this does seem to be worse when I am what I believe to be constipated.

hello, I was cleaning and working up a real sweat. I bent down to pick up something and when I stood up, my heart felt like it was flopping around. I got freaked out and my anxiety started to really act up. I went to sit down and had a drink of water, trying to cool down, and it started up again for a few seconds. That freaked me out and I had a full out anxiety attack, and started shaking and hyperventilation. Now im freaked out and keep pacing around, im not sure if its going to happen again. With my last pregnancy, i was on metoprolal(spelling) cuz i had heart palpitations frequently and I didnt want it to be anything serious. I had a ultrasound done on my heart in sept 2009, and my cardiologist said my heart structure was nice and strong. I am going through a lot of stress between work and home, and i am currently on .25mg of alprozalom 2 times daily to help with anxiety. But today really freaked me out!
