Suffering from severe constipation and now bleeding


Ive been on Suboxone for a long time. I've had constipation for a while also. Today I try to use the bathroom and I started to bleed as I was going. Any ideas or experiences that someone can help me with this

That doesn't sound like fun :-( Best to talk to your doctor or go to ER if needed. Hope you get it taken care of.

Hi Booellis - gotta agree with Marcus - sounds like a Dr could help?

I would also recommend speaking with your doctor. Bleeding can occur for any number of reasons.

Please get checked out!

What have you tried?

You may have busted a vein or a hemorrhoid. You do need to figure that out. Many people report using plain stool softeners without laxative. It's basically gut grease.

I have used the 240mg red ones or the little 100mg football types. I have taken up to three or four every time I ate....that was when I was on methadone and high Oxy doses in PM. The nurses told me about it too.

Laxatives that have other ingredients aren't good for long term but plain gut grease in large amounts may help. Good luck and don't let it get away from you. Keep glycerin suppositories too. Insert hours before you feel a turd....grease man, grease!

My doctor put me on GENERALAC...a liquid stool softener caused by the Subxone....worked great! And has no taste at all!
