    Hi everyone!

    Has anyone here taken Zelnorm? I started it a couple of weeks ago. I spent 5 hrs. in the ER the other night. They are pretty sure it's an ulcer. Wondering if there is any correlation?

    Thanks-Julie

    Julie,

    When I first started taking Zelnorm I was taking 2 a day. After 3 days I was pooping all of the time. I then cut back to 1 a day and then only when I felt I needed to go.

    As far as the ulcer, could it have already of been there but was undiagnosed? I would hope that only a couple of weeks of use would not bring on an ulcer. When do you go back to the doctor who prescribed the Zelnorm?
