I didn't go at all until I tried Ducolax. Very powerful stuff, but the side effects are chronic cramps. But it really does work. It's the only thing that helps me go.

I'm only going every 4 or 5 days. I didn't find that senokot did any good at all, dulcolax on the other hand is like rocket fuel.

You're lucky you go 4-5 times a week. I only go once a week and that's when I take ducolax. I only go on a saturday morning or afternoon, depends when the cramps hit.

Yas it's once every for 4 or 5 days, not per week and that's only cos I take the dulcolax. I reckon I could go two weeks straight without going otherwise:rolleyes:

Sorry you're suffering. I did several weeks ago and it was awful. Thankfully Senokot worked a treat and I take them now if I need them and always work. Hope you get something that works.

I only go once every 4 days and then its not very much (sorry if TMI).

I have tried sennakot twice as it usually works for me but the 1st time I got severe cramps.. It was TOTM so maybe that was why? The last time I took only 3/4 of a tablet and it had no effect. Going to get some more tomorrow and see if a full dose works.

Rhubarb yoghurt with flaxseed is normally my favourite and most effective solution toconstipation but its a non-starter on LT!!

Hi Trivinam

Yes, I was wondering about that. I 'go' about every 4 days and... think...er...bunny pellets ( sorry tmi), but it really doesn't bother me. I'm not in pain or uncomfortable, I suppose I figured, no food, no........?? :sick0019:

What sometimes works is to drink as cold a glass of water as you can manage followed immediately by as hot a drink as you can manage - water, black coffee/tea whatever. x Good Luck! x
