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?

Hi riddickI just stumbled across your thread when you answered someones question about pico salax. You said it was "evil stuff". I heard that it was the best prep to use when preping for a colonoscopy. I am not happy about having to drink a gallon of salt water so I have been trying to find the most tolerable prep. I have heard several other comments stating how "evil" the effects are with it. Is it any worse than any other products that people have used? I am sure that none of the preps are pleasant once you get to the potty phase. Any comments?Thanks,Carolyn
