Constant hunger
Good morning. I`m struggling the a hunger and constipation problem. I am constantly hungry and craving stuff. I feel very constipated due to all the food that i take in. my brain keeps telling me to eat. I am almost 50 and had a hysterectomy a few years ago so the cravings is not due to pregnancy or something like that. I am on Nuzak 20 mg could this cause the cravings ?
