I started taking Adapex 10 days ago I have been

Patient : I started taking Adapex 10 days ago. I have been constipated now for 7 days. Constipation is a side effect. When I told my doctor about my problem 3 days ago, she said that it was too early for these symptoms to arrive. My problem with this answer is that I have never had a problem with bowel movements in the past. I always go Atleast once a day, until now. She told me I should t take any type of laxative. I've been drinking warm prune juice first thing on the morning, and lots of water the rest of the day.
