It is time to ge4t a complete physical to rule out anything physical causing this problem.In the meantime bump up your intake of soluble fiber.As an IBS er, I am all too familier with the BIG C and the bloating that accompanies. I found benefiber tablets to work quite well and I drink tons of water.The benefiber tablets work quite nicely with out the gassiness of some of the other fiber supplements.Keep exercising and between the fiber and the exercise you should see some relief within a week.
So get a physical and go from there.be sure to have your thyroid checked.Hyper thyroid will give you this .It is amazing what that little galnd in your neck will affecr.
Hang in there and let us know how it goes.
Thank you very much for getting back to me. You are an angel.
But I wanted to tell you that I developed the constipation issue (which I NEVER had before in my life) while on Lexapro 10mg. And the belly and the bloating got bigger and bigger. I went to a Gastronolgist twice and he did blood work and all that and everything came out normal. HE did give some powder stuff but it really didn't work. I thought I could be impacted but the doctor said I wasn't at the time. I guess my question is you would think that some of this horrible bloating would go away after being off Lex for 30 days and it's not?
I will try the Benefiber as per your recommendation. But have you heard of cases where people get this horrible belly fat and bloating due to Lexapro? Or is it just me?
Thank you so much for trying to help me. It means so much to me.
I am glad to help.I have never heard of anyone getting bloating and the big C on lexapro and I know quite a few people who are on it. But I suspect theer is alot the drug maker doesnt know about their side effects.When I was on luvox I had the worst nightmares I ever since I was a kid.I went straight to doc and made him change my med. So in the meantime hang in there. and FIBER<FIBER<FIBER.LOL
When I was on Prozac my belly got so big my mom, god rest her sole, asked me if I was pregnant. that was 11 years ago. I still have the belly. I think the prozac made the fat deposit there.
I understand the constipation because I got it from being on Remeron. I have never had it before. However, I ate 3 plums, a nectartine, 2 peaches and a bananna and drank lots of water and it sure did help. I think fruit is the answer.
I too have the bloating problem. I took generic lexapro , excitopran?, for three weeks and quit because of the bloating. It took a month to recover. I thought maybe it was some other cause so I tried the pill again and the next day I looked 6 months pregnant and my belly was rock hard. I quit after one pill and it is more than two weeks and still it is an issue after earing.
