basuraeuropea replied to Hermione's topic in Cocktails - Medicated to the Gills and Flounderingi take ziprasidone for bipolar I disorder, but also for ocd and it works great. i realize you're already on risperidone, although i was as well and ziprasidone works lightyears better. best of luck!
hello all, i'm on a combination of meds that really is working out quite well for me. the only problem is that the cocktail leaves me with profound constipation. the ziprasidone and memantine are mostly to blame, although neither can be removed from the cocktail. i have tried amitiza (lubiprostone) and linzess (linaclotide) to no avail. senna also does not work, nor do any of the over-the-counter constipation medications. i was wondering if anyone has tried the opioid antagonists naloxegol (movantik) or methylnaltrexone (relistor) for med-induced constipation not related to opioid use as this was suggested as a last ditch alternative by my gastroenterologist. i am currently managing the constipation with massive amounts of miralax which is both costly and inconvenient. any help would be greatly appreciated! best, basuraeuropea
