Loose Stomach
I am currently taking Glucophage and Eltroxin and my stomach has become very very soft. Could this be a side effect of the medication. I am going to the toilet about three times a day and it is like water. I do not feel ill with it. Could this be a side effect of the Glucophage or Eltroxin. Please advise

Dear Monique
Glucophage can cause diarrhoea and nausea. Try taking Fybogel orange - it will absorb some of the water and help for the very watery stools
