I have had awful constipation and impaction problems for many, many months. This was put down to my MS and despite taking great care with my diet, trying all sorts of medications, I was getting nowhere.
It was then pointed out to me that amitriptyline can be really detrimental to good guts (like with much of the medication we have to take!), so I cut it out and also introduced linseeds into my life! They’re not the most delicious thing in the world, but 1 tablespoon morning and evening has worked wonders. I’m regular for the first time in years, and it’s so nice to have something go right for once.
I’m not usually one to harp on about these things, but it’s made such a difference (after a couple of weeks) that I had to share.
