    I am on a lot of psych meds and had no problem with constipation til the Neurontin. I've been taking Ultimate Cleanse-a multi herbal/mult fiber combo. It helped at first but since my doc increased the Neurontin to 900 mgs and the Klonopin to 3 mgs per day, it's not working anymore. I try to eat lots of fiber and drink lots of water. I'll look up the ZMA here and also try to increase my magnesium. I've never heard of that as a cure for constipation but I'm bgetting desperate. Thanks.

    Before you add more drugs, try adding plain old magnesium supplements to your diet. 240 mg works for me, but others take much more. I take it at night and have relief the next day. It works for me -- all of the time! Start off with 240 mg and start adding 120 mgs until it works for you.

    I cannot BEGIN to tell you to pain and agony I went through b4 my pain mgmt. doc prescribed Miralax!!!!!!!!!!!
    I was consti from pain meds...PCP WOULD NOT LISTEN...I, too, have a history of Crohn's Disease and now have IBS! NOTHING helped but Miralax...a scoop a day in a drink is all...didn't like it in water so put it in my morning cup of coffe or tea..don't even know it's there! :)

    Please DO NOT SUFFER like I did needlessly...

    Most Sincerely,

    Hi Sarah,

    I too have been having problems with constipation and was turned on to "natural calm" it's a magnesium product that the folks on this board turned me on to. I just received it yesterday and started taking.
    Seems to be working fine so far.
