Has anyone else had their hopes crushed with Motegrity..? My doctors said it was my last option and then they'll need to refer me to a specialist. I've been super constipated on it and dealing with tons of cramping and lack of appetite.. I have Gastroparesis. Anyone else..? I'm rapidly loosing weight and am really concerned about my health at this point 😞

      I’m on motegrity too and I have gastroparesis as well, have you tried trulance or Linzess? I take trulance in the morning combined with mirolax in my coffee and motegrity in the afternoon I still only make one bowel movement a day. It’s not the most effective for me but it’s getting the job done and I will most likely need pyloric surgery as I get very full and bloated easily but I thought I’d share!

      Is the med causing you constipation or is that just something you already deal with? cause it’s main purpose is to help with constipation. I was disappointed because I was taking it as a prokenetic to speed up my stomach motility and it only helped a bit at first. I think seeing a specialist is good because they’ll have more expertise and may have more treatment options than a general doctor.
