beach -I have had great results with prune juice, but I can only drink it if I know that I will be close to a bathroom for a while.It can cause some cramping, but not that bad and certainly not as bad as stimulate laxatives cramp me up.The thing that's hard with prune juice is sometimes it works in 15 - 30 minutes and sometimes it takes a couple of hours...so I have to be able to be at home in case it's one of the longer times...loon

I cannot take prune juice. It does help me "go", but leaves me with unbearable rumbling and gas. My stomach blows up because of all the gas, because for some reason..I can't "pass" any of it. It just sits there moving and rumbling around. I'd rather be "C" than drink prune juice. I do, however, eat a few prunes every morning.

Ive never tried the prune juice, but Ive been considering it. Do you think it would still work as well, if I mix say a half a cup of it with a half a cup of apple juice?

That's why I was wondering. Because I notice the next day lots of gas and rumbling and I hate that feeling. It almost makes me feel anxious.

Prunes and the juice give me quite alot of gas. But, I still eat 4 or 5 prunes every night for dessert! And it really helps the next day.

Prunes don't give me gas. They actually help so much. It's when its in the prune juice form, I notice a ton of gas.

I used to have bm's years ago after prune juice plus horrible gas and pain. Now, it does nothing whatsoever because of the ginger root I take. I get no gas, just nothing. If I wasn't taking the ginger I would, no doubt, be doubled over in pain.

I find that sometimes it works and at other times nothing happens and I am left with terrible pain and gas.
