This is a rather desperate attempt but it can't hurt to try.

Does anyone know anything about Japanese laxatives? I am currently traveling there and while I feel ok, I haven't passed much stool since I've been here which is typical for me when I travel. Because of this I haven't taken my suppositories and that is going to cause other issues.

I dont speak Japanese so I'm totally lost in the drug store. If anyone has any advice that'd be amazing. Thank you!
21 y/o, diagnosed 6/2007

Symptoms currently under control with Humira and a wheat-free, processed food-free diet. Beginning to have symptoms of GERD...

I know nothing about Japanese brand laxatives but the word(or one of many) for laxative in Japanese is 腹下し

Try printing and presenting this sentence to a chemist or pharmacist:

腹下しをください。(laxatives please)

You may want to say 'sumimasen' to catch their attention.
 
 
On my computer the japanese letters have not come up(DD had to do this post from her computer), if you have full office on your computer the japanese letters should show up!
 
DD, who has just completed her first year at uni studying Japanese has translated!

mk11:  I googled japanese/english translation -entered laxatives and this is what it was translated to:
 
kudashigusuri, gezai, kangeyaku, geyaku
 
Hope all this helps, have fun!  If you can tolerate anything wilth seaweed in it . . .its a great fiberous product!

Hey, I tried to go out to your geocities web address but google says the site has been closed down.  Would love to read more about your story -always love personal stories.  Hope all is well.
