I have been on Adapex for 10 days now. I take a half a pill twice a day. I have been constipated for 7 days now. I have never had problems with my bowel movements in the past. It has always been normal for me to have Atleast one a day, until now. Constupation is a side effect, but when I asked my doctor about this she said that it was too soon for these symptoms to occure, and not to take any type of laxative. I have been drinking warm prune juice first thing in the mornings, and lots of water the remainder of the days. I feel something more needs to be done after 7 days.
