Ativan Constipation Causes and Reviews


Constipation means that a person has three or fewer bowel movements in a week. The stool can be hard and dry. Sometimes it is painful to pass. At one time or another, almost everyone gets constipated. In most cases, it lasts a short time and is not serious.

There are many things you can do to prevent Constipation. They include

  • Eating more fruits, vegetables and grains, which are high in fiber
  • Drinking plenty of water and other liquids
  • Getting enough exercise
  • Taking time to have a bowel movement when you need to
  • Using laxatives only if your doctor says you should
  • Asking your doctor if medicines you take may cause Constipation

It's not important that you have a bowel movement every day. If your bowel habits change, however, check with your doctor.

does valium cause afib?

Sun, 17 Oct 2010

What I have been exsperiencing is when I want to go to sleep I start having vivid confusing images that don't make sense. I will be thinking about my day then a thought like eating ice cream and cake will pop in my mind and I never ate ice cream and cake that day. Once my brain picks up on that my heart races and I think where did that thought come from since it was so vivid. It scares me so then I am afraid to go to sleep thinking I'm losing my mind or something. Should I just let me mind think what it wants after all I am just going to sleep. But it freaks me out.

I was having bad dreams and anxiety attacks (My Mom was murdered in 2005). I started drinking to calm my nerves, but decided to quit alcohol. I was told by a nurse that quiting "Cold Turkey" could be dangerous, so I went to see the doctor at the University. He prescribed Lorazepam and sent me home with instructions. He said that since he did not have hospital privileges, I should take the medication and wean off alcohol at home. A couple weeks later, I "woke up" in jail. I had apparently been sleepdriving, but I have no memory of the experience.
