It's hard to know what to do. I have been battling ARD for a few years and I have never wanted to get dependent on laxatives.

If I don't take anything then I do not go to the bathroom for about five days and I am miserable. I have been told by my dr. and pain dr. that we MUST have a BM every day or serious complications can arise. (Blockages etc.) I only take them about once a week and have found that they are not strong enough or they cause so much pain that I won't take that kind. I hurt if I don't go and it is very painful to go from the scar tissue binding the intestines.

This is actually very good, sound advice Jen gives.

There are very few OTC laxatives, if any, that are intended for, or safe for, long term use.
