You can use it hun!!! I personally find it a bit harsh.... i use a couple of senna tablets every other night!!! Combined with lots of peppermint tea!!! Think you can have fybogel (But i'd double check that) But just the original.... no flavoured ones!!!

I swear by senna though.... don't get the growling tummy ache that i get with bisocodyl!!!

Deezer, is it okay to use ducolax? I asked about it in a thread but have forgotten.
Because I don't want to come out of ketosis. Thank you xx

I would go for something more gentle- I tried Dulcolax and swear the agony I was in I had to go home from work it was just to rough for my stomach and it's effects lasted for days... :(

I'm not sure if I should try it or not? Or should I just go for something completely different?! I hate being in pain lol, so they might not be worth taking x

The cramps I had were like IBS cramps and I could not risk being too far from a bathroom. I actually had to take painkillers which I kicked myself for as I'd done it to myself. Maybe others can take them without the pain and perhaps it was cause I was on LT but they were bad!! I would lean towards Senna now...

Thank you :D
That's horrible.
I think I'll give senna a go instead then, it doesn't take you out of ketosis either does it? x

Not sure but I took it anyway as there was no way I could do Dulcolax again- they were thrown out!!

my 2 pence lol.... I use dulcolax and dulcoease when i feel i need to (dependent on the problem) but not very often maybe once a week at the most, it hasn't taken me out of ketosis and personally i don't have any of the reported problems above, but each to their own we are all different x

I was told it was ok to use senna and I have started taking them twice a week which seems to do the trick nicely (is that too much information?)!! I find it better for me if I don't let things build up too much ooops there I go again TMI !!!!

Spoke to LT yesterday and they said I could use senna, dulcolax or fybogel. Have to say the fybogel natural one tastes bloody vile! So I'm now using dulcolax tablets which are doing the job nicely :D x x x
