tribuss abd purbac DS can they cause constipation?

Apr 24, 2013

Hi again, thanks for your previous response, I was wondering since my husband has started suffering constipation if its related to his meds or rather the amount of time he sleeps and rests? Even a little walk exhausts him at the moment. Thanks for any suggestions you might have.

Response from Dr. Young

Hi again,

Neither Tribuss (Atripla) or Purbac (Bactrim) are associated with constipation. I'd suggest increasing his fiber/fruit/vegetable and fluid intake. If the symptoms are severe, it would be good to discuss with his doctors.

I hope that helps. BY
