IBS: I see you have a diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and it appears you are having an exacerbation of the condition, with apparent IBS-d. See the GI Dr. to get a full exam and the two of you can map out a plan of treatment including possible medications, diet, and stress reduction. Best wishes. ...Read more
I feel constipated but my stool is soft,but I am still unable to have a good bowel movement. It's been 4 wks. I take miralax (polyethylene glycol) daily. What else can I do?
Careful Re: Dx & Tx: Constipation is a diagnosis in the judgement of the person making the dx; but this do not mean the DX is correct or true. Treatment, even if DX is correct, does not mean the tx selected will necessarily be successful. There are many variables here, as usual. Thus question either the DX and/or the efficacy of the tx, as implemented. Medicine always trial & error; focus on strategies which do work. ...Read more

YouHaveAFullHouse?: A Wise Man once said "There's a hole at the bottom and it will all come out eventually." In your young case I bet that might be true. I think you should be a little more patient.Bottom line, though, is if you are really uncomfortable(like horrible cramps, etc)then go to an Urgent Care for a Royal Flush(call first to talk with them about it). Otherwise, it may take some time with a stool softener. ...Read more

Last night I was constipated, so I took a laxative. It worked, but now I'm constipated again. What should I do?
Good bowel regimen: Long term laxative use is not recommended . The goal is to have consistent bowel movements without having to rely on laxatives . You can begin by taking miralax (polyethylene glycol) twice daily , once you begin having consistent bowel movements you can taper off to once daily or as needed . The goal would be to aim for soft bowel movements that do not require straining ...Read more

I go days without producing a bm. I take softners and miralax (polyethylene glycol). I worry something is seriously wrong. I eat everyday but no bm occurs for several days.
Constipation: Having bowel movement upto every 3 days could be normal for some patients. However, if you have longer that this and stool is hard, required straining is abnormal. Try to have adequate hydration, consume adequate amount of fiber, add fiber supplement (goal of 25-30 grams of fiber total). Make sure you titrate fiber intake. Do not take high amount of fiber at start. Can take MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) twice/day. ...Read more
