Tamoxifen - evil constipation - important warning!

 JAMA Patient Page  Sept. 17

In an article on cautions for use of OTC laxatives, JAMA had slightly different categories than the ones I got elsewhere, and also this warning:

 "As an example, in January 2014 the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a safety warning about OTC sodium phosphate osmotic laxatives. The FDA warned that in rare instances, using more than 1 dose in 24 hours of these laxatives could cause serious harm to the kidneys and heart, and even death."

Drink plenty of water for the sake of your intestines.  Eat something you like that will also bring water into your digestion - maybe really crisp head lettuce, cantaloupe, water melon.

I wish you health.
