    Does anyone know if you can use laxatives while using byetta. Can't find any info.

    As Byetta works, in part, by slowing down food going through your system, laxatives may affect that process. Unless someone on the forum has already done the legwork, it might be best to have a word with your diabetes nurse/doctor, GP or pharmacist.

    Hope this helps
