Still Constipated After Enema
I took one Dulcolax laxative & a few Dulcolax stool softeners. I had normal BM few hours after. Can Dulcolax cause painful cramping? Very strong
Probably, since...: Dulcolax (bisacodyl) is a stimulant laxative that works by increasing movement of intestines, helping stool to come out, assuming normal GI anatomy without inflammation, stenosis, extrinsic or instrinsic obstruction. Cramping would be a common side effect, but if persistent please seek evaluation. ...Read more

Fiber and Magnesium: Try adding several tablespoonfuls of psyllium husks (Konsyl) to your daily regimen. Mix and drink fast, as it will solidify in the glass otherwise. Follow with another glass of water. Do this daily. Add magnesium to your diet, as well--500-1500 mg per day. You can't overdose on magnesium, because it will give you diarrhea. Find the dose that's right for you. ...Read more
Is it common for defecation to feel incomplete after using miralax (polyethylene glycol)? I feel like i still have to go even after a big poop. I took miralax (polyethylene glycol) 2 days ago
Living Life: Your brain appears to be an addict brain. It is lying to you. When one is addicted to something the obsession is bizarre and way out of bounds for the problem. Your body has to learn how to be normal again. This will take time. I get the strong sense that you may have an underlying mental health problem. This obsession is not normal in any way. Perhaps it is time to get to psychiatry. ...Read more
What kind of pain?: Need diagnosis first. "Cure" depends on if simply just hemorrhoids/fissure or something serious. Have you been straining at stool, have rectal dysfunction, perform an activity that increases pelvic engorgement with blood or increases pelvic pressure (heavy lifting, prolonged sitting, etc.)? History of colitis, infection, rectal/anal trauma or high risk? Best to get rechecked--don't delay please. ...Read more
The last two days I have been popping water. A few days before that, I was constapated. Iv been taking Dulcolax laxative tablets for women and miralax (polyethylene glycol)?
Miralax (polyethylene glycol): Miralax (polyethylene glycol) and Dulcolax can definitely get things moving again. If you were constipated and now you're having very watery stools, it time to stop the MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) and dulcolax. You probably have medication induced cause of diarrhea. ...Read more
Backed up colon, took citromag thursday, constant liquid bowel movements, now Monday, gassy, green stool, loose, somewhat constipated. Anything? 20 yo
Constipation: If you still feel constipated in the sense that you continue to have an urge and need for a satisfactory bowel movement, you may have some impacted hard stool with only liquid feces being expelled around it. If this is the case, try using a dulcolax rectal suppository and/or a fleets enema. Occasionally manual breaking up or extraction of hard,impacted stool is necessary in stubborn cases. ...Read more
Constipation being sick I have been on laxidoes, senekot and glycerin suppositorystill no movement been months since last emptied bowels please help?
By emptying: you must mean having a sense of COMPLETELY emptying your bowels. You couldn't go for months with no bowel movement at all. It seems to me that repeated enemas are the way to go now..you could have at least a partial impaction and this would be the best way to deal with it. You should ask for some medical assistance so that you can be checked and monitored during this procedure. Work with your Doc. ...Read more

Can I use glycerin suppository if 16 oz of prune juice didn't help constipation? Been 6.5 days since last bowel movement
Invest in an enema: If at 18 you haven't gone in a week, your issue is unlikely to respond to glycerine. The large intestine has extracted enough moisture from the plug in your lower bowel to require more aggressive work. An enema is available under several generic or brand forms.Insert, hold in as long as you can, and empty.Repeat daily if needed. Use mirilax or similar to help from above. Empty daily to avoid pbs. ...Read more
