So I have just seen my Dr regarding my current 'bowel' situation. In the past my main problem has been incomplete evacuation - I would usually 'go' to the loo everyday, and the stool would be quite soft, it was just rarely enough to push everything through, so to speak. My go-to medication was ducolax (aka biscodyl) which I would take maybe once a week, and I would return to 'normal' for a few days afterwards.


However, after taking my last dose of biscodyl, my stool has become quite hard. I still 'go' most mornings but again it's not enough and, despite my efforts to drink more and eat 'softer foods', my stool will not soften.


So this morning my Dr prescribed me coloxyl with senna aka docusate sodium with senna because it has both a stimulant and a stool softener.


What are other peoples experiences with this? Are there any side effects? How long does it usually take to work?
