What's happening now are my bowels are moving a lot, fully formed, and there's some cramping and gas... I ate a lot of cabbage tonight I see the GI tomorrow.
I've been using the canasa every night. I blame the anti-depressant Wellbutrin for causing the constipation that made me take a dose of Purelax, which is a knock off of miralax, would not recommend it, I think I'm riding the course of that one dose, I think.
Otherwise my bowel movements have been perfect.
I'm also going to cut back on my psyllium husk drinks to one, I think I'm overdoing it since I got constipated. ''
