I have IBS-C and am feeling at the end of my rope.
I take fiber supplements everyday, eat bran cereal every morning, removed red meat from my diet, and exercise 30 mins six days a week. Once in a while I will get relief for two or three glorious months, but then something tiggers it (like my period or eating something like a piece of pizza) then I am back to constant C for months on end.
For the past four months I have been using Prunelax for some relief which work well the first two times, but not so great the last two times.
Today I was in so much pain and was so desperate that I bought a Fleet Glycerin, but it looks intimedating and have never inserted anything up there before.
Can someone please give me a little info on it and whether or not I should take it.
I should also tell you that I just started taking 6 capsules of metamucil everyday since last thursday and have drank about 13 glasses of water to help, but I only seem to get worse. So far the only thing my doctor told me to use is Miralax but it really doesn't do the trick either.
Thanks in advance!
