    Yes you can, but don't it's really aggressive and causes bad stomach cramps, try sennacot (senna) instead much gentler and works well. I have looked at other threads on hear about same stuff, as i was suffering too, and they all seem to say the same thing. hope that help hun x

    This is one problem which I definately never suffer from on CD. I find all the water I drink does the trick for me. Maybe I am strange becasue I have read quite a few posts on constipation. Does anyone else find water the water works for them?

    I dont even know if it is constipation, I do feel a bit bloated, but Im just worried because I have only been doing a 'No. 2' once a week....:( I drink at least 4 litres of water a day...

    Is this normal???

    Maybe I should just let it run its course...

    When you think about it you can only pass out what you put in, if there isn't a lot going in, there's not going to be a lot coming out lol. Of course, if you feel bloated, sluggish - you know the feeling, take half of the dose of laxative. This is only a idea becasue in the past I have taken laxatives (for diets) when my stomach has actually been more or less empty and boy, was I in agony!!

    I used Andrews salts and it worked for me! I don't think it kicked me out as I've lost 21lb in three weeks!

    I use fibresure in my water daily, this helps. Also I find senna gives
    me terrible stomach cramps.

    Your CDC can give you fibre drinks if you are having problems, i find i only go once week so its quite normal i think.

    Hi,

    fibogel is really good too but you have to have the original one that isn't flavoured or it will take you out of ketosis. As others have said, you won't go as much as before 'cos your not eating a lot of roughage.
    hope this helps!!

    Of course it is up to you what you take but be careful with Duloclax. I have said this previously (and sorry if anyone else has heard it before) but I was in agony with it and sat crying on the toilet for about 2 hours. I now take senna and it works a treat. Hope the problem moves on soon for you and catbee;)
