I have suffered from IBS for over 30 years, and ultimately became laxative dependant. about
3 years ago, I started using phosphosoda once a week (3 Tbs) just so I could have a BM (nothing else would do
)... yea, that's the nasty stuff some docs recommend as a colon prep. Anyway, about
6 months ago, I developed pain in my URQ that has been getting progressively worse. I am to the point that I think I should mention it to my doc, but first wanted to see if there was anyone else out there who has used phosphosoda regularly, as a laxative. I doubt there's a connection between my pain and my long-term use of phosposoda, but I just came across some interesting information about
kidney dangers being associated with phosphosoda in some people.
