    I'm on week 7 and for the last 4 weeks i have not done a poo without taking dulcolax. I don't want to take them all the time so have only been taking once a week meaning i only poo once a week (sorry TMI). Not feeling very comfortable with this and was womndering if i should try something else non medical?

    Have you tried adding some psylium husks to your shakes? You can make porridge with them. They are a natural bulking agent and will keep things moving down there!

    I never tried doing the porridge thing so i take psylium husks in tablet form every day and i have had no more problems since. You are right and shouldnt be taking laxatives that much as they can mess around with things. hth

    The other thing is if you do get to the point where you need help and don't want to get dependant on a stimulant type laxative like Dulcolax (very sensible if you want to ever be able to go again without them!) then try a stool softeneing type like Dulcoease which work by drawing water into the bowel, bulking up the stool and making it ready to pass.
