Hi Sophie, AS Carol said, you can ask to reduce it. I had to have my dosage cut in half. Also nausea pills, take before you need. Then every 6-8 hours for the first few days. Keeping that nausea under control is a biggy. In doing so you may be able to avoid vomiting, dehydration,constipation, and additional pain and general discomfort. Don't be afraid to use those anti nausea pills. Now that I said this, you may still have some of those side effects but I think you get what I'm saying. Keep some suppositories on hand in case of constipation and Immoduium for the runs. Just in case. My doctor wants me to go regular. If not by the third day he prescribed me Lactulose syrup 1 tablespoon 2 times a day as needed. He made it clear not to over use and to keep fliuids going in ,as we all hear that constantly. I eat and drink like a little pig whether I feel like it or not.
Hope the reduction in dosage works better for you.
