Share time – might be too much info for some!

I take a daily dose of painkillers for my arthritis and fibromyalgia and have handfuls of meds/inhalers/sprays for my asthma, so, I am almost always constipated to some degree or another. I have found that when it gets really bad two Dulcolax gets the job done the next day. To such an extent that I will only take it if I know I don’t have to rush off out anywhere in the morning! Boy does it work.

I get senna tablets from my GP and also Movical. Paul is absolutely right about making sure you take in as much fluid as possible. Some of our hydration comes from our food – we eat very little, hence drastically reduced amounts of fluid. These are just our ways of dealing with the problem. If you ever become really concerned, please refer to your GP or team – especially if you are a newbie.
