Does Forteo cause constipation. If so, how is it treated?
@allo ; it is one of the possible side effects. https://www.rxlist.com/forteo-side-effects-drug-center.htm
@alllo: DO NOT TAKE LAXATIVES. Try this: https://www.globalhealingcenter.com/exp/oxy-powder.html
Yes, it does cause constipation. Try six to eight prunes in the morning.
I have been doing the Forteo injections for three months now and have not experienced any complications or side-effects. I do agree with eating Prunes (which I like anyway). There are studies that show eating 10 prunes a day helps with Osteoporosis/Osteopenia, so eating them for constipation will have a double-positive impact. Personally, I’ll put a bunch of prunes in water and simmer them for a few minutes (you can do this in the microwave), then put them in the fridge. They get soft and sweet.
