Were you looking for information about Zelnorm? Zelnorn is a common misspelling of Zelnorm.
Zelnorm® (tegaserod maleate) is a medication that is often prescribed for the treatment of chronic idiopathic constipation and irritable bowel syndrome with constipation. By stimulating certain serotonin receptors in the digestive tract, the medicine can help the digestive tract muscles move food through more quickly and make the nerves in the digestive tract less sensitive.
This drug comes in a tablet form and is available in two different strengths: 2 mg and 6 mg. A few of the conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about before you take Zelnorm include frequent diarrhea, liver disease or liver failure (including cirrhosis), and any allergies you may have (including allergies to foods, dyes, or preservatives). Among the factors that can affect the dosage your healthcare provider prescribes are your age, other drugs you may be currently taking, and other medical conditions you may have.
