    Hi friends,
    I am now on a daily laxative (dulcolax.) I have been having so much trouble, and have tried everything from Miralax, stool softeners, veggie laxatives, prune juices, you name it.

    I went back to my GI doctor and he said I must not worry about taking the laxative every day. It is my only choice and have to do it. He said it is as important as my pain meds now. He termed it, "Opioid Bowel Syndrome." I had my choice of Milk of Magnesia, Sennakot(I already tried with no luck, and the Dulcolax.

    Just wanted to share..

    God bless.

    meowee, does the dulcolax work everyday for you?
    I took an exlax last night & I did not get the results I need. I am so bloated & so full, I can't even take a deep breath without hurting in my rib cage. Were you like that?
    I need to do something too.

    It didn't work. I took one the next morning and then it worked great. I then started it everynight, and now take it nightly.

    GOOD LUCK
