The headline says it all. It's been roughly 3 weeks or more since I've had a bowel movement. I've been on suboxone for about 2 months now(8mg daily) and since then I haven't had hardly any bowel movements. The times that I do eventually go aren't even worth talking about. There was one time I could think of within these couple months that I had a decent one, but I know I wasn't cleaned out completely. I haven't noticed any stomach pain until last night and throughout today. I also feel slightly nauseous as well, which I haven't felt until today (then again I haven't eaten all day, I'm nervous about accumulating more food) My question is, is it even safe to use over the counter laxatives after being this backed up? This has never happened to me before so I'm honestly terrified. My diet is complete crap (no pun intended) and I still have an appetite. I don't see how all this food is just sitting there with nowhere to go. Has anybody else gone this long without going? Any help is appreciated, thanks guys!

This has by far been my biggest issue.. If you read my old posts it's been a challenge. I take correctol and 3 stool softeners every night. Some people have success with Amariza a prescription your dr can give you. I would do a fleet liquid glycerin suppository, at the least it would soften stuff up. Make sure if you take laxative that you take stool soft too or you won't be able to pass it. Opiates cause motility to slow down and Suboxone's long half life just makes the cummulative effect even worse.
