Its a celebration between me and my husband when I have a bowel movement as well! Since I've been on 1200mgs of neurontin my bowls have been doing about 60mph. I also stopped the prozac though.( another constipating drug) I remember all the 1am or 4am runs to the hospital because of blockages!! I also even now have to lay down after a bowl movement because of the pain if feel. Even as I speak I am sitting at the computer with a huge glass of water. I have a britta filter and I try to drink as much (without electrolite damage) as I can. I dont know if any of this helps, but if only one person can pick up a tip that works for them, thats GREAT!!
