I've been pretty constipated over the past few days.This lunch time I tried half a sachet of Picolax. Evan though its working, it's been bretty slow - now 6 hours later, I'm still going to the bathroom, and I don't feel that its really clearing me out. I should say that I been eating a fair amount of dietary fibre over the last few days, and I know this can reduce the efficacy of the laxative. Could this be reason why?Also, I had a meal (with fibre) 1hr after taking the preparation - could this have had an effect?Should I continue to refrain from eating?Will this all subside by Monday - I have to go into work.Anybody know where to get hold of Fleet Enemas in the UK?
