Gemtesa and Marilax

2 months ago

I have been taking Gemtesa for 9 months and have much improvement. Recently, I became extremely constipated. The GI recommended daily Marilax and the Gemtesa totally stopped working. My urologist said there should be no interaction between the Gemtesa and Miralax as did my GI and
When I convinced the GI there was an interaction by finding a study found taking Miralax could interfere with Gemtsa, he suggested Linzess for constipation. Between Linzess and Gemtesa, the monthly cost would be over $400 with insurance after the $500 deductible.

Does anyone know of a laxative that can be taken daily with Gemtesa? I tried Meta=mucil but that made the constipation worse. Thank you
