I feel like my pain medication is causing constipation.

Q: I have AF and my doctor has prescribed opiates for pain at bedtime. I feel like these are causing constipation. I don’t want to add anything too strong to my body. Are there natural ways to help me with constipation?

A: One of the expected side effects of opiates is constipation. You can try taking the Cleanse ‘N’ Trim Tea from www.supplementclinic.com. Also taking some magnesium may help.
