    Hi All

    Just wondering what you all use for 'constipation'? :ashamed0005:

    I took 2 Senokot on Fri (nothing happended Sat morning...)

    I took another 2 on Sunday (again nothing happened Monday morning...)

    Today is Wednesday and I've had 'no movement' for about 12 days? Usually Senokot does the trick...

    Any advise??

    I would second Lactulose, Senna i would not recommend at all as it may affect the long term function of the bowel as its a stimulant laxative, whereas lactulose is a stool softener.

    I had some discomfort last week and I took Dulcolax. Took 2 each time, and it took 2 lots to have an effect, but it DID have an effect!

    All fine now. I am now taking Fibre 89 every day as suggested by KD.

    I've only been properly constipated once on CD, and I did take Senokot (or 'Senna' tablets, the cheaper alternatives from SuperSavers). I took a couple at night, and next day everything was OK again! ;)

    I always find drinking a couple of hot drinks in succession also seems to help (especially in the morning).

    I personally find Lactulose too 'fierce' (I seem be on the loo for ages about five minutes after taking it!). But like anything else, it's whatever suits you!

    I take dulcolax, the first time I took 2 and was fine the next day (but I hadn't been for ages as the sennakot hadn't worked), now I take one every 2 days and everything is fine.
