After trying lots of things including both Zelnorm and Amitiza, alone and in combination with other things such as Activia, prune juice, Equalactin, etc., I've found that the critical ingredient that keeps me regular now now is Fleet glycerin suppositories. If I insert one after breakfast, in a half hour or so I have to go, sometimes urgently. I know it acts as a saline laxative but since it's mildly irritating to the rectum I was wondering if any damage could result from using it every day, long term. I have already been using it for about 4 months, and at this point I'm not sure whether anything else I'm taking has any effect any more, so I'm planning to continue it and experiment with cutting out the other meds one by one, provided it's safe to use a suppository every day. Does anyone know if it is?
