oh so sorry the two pills didn't work for you today. good luck with the three and miralax. i've found taking an osmostic with a stimulant helps the stimulant work better and often means i don't have to take as much of the stimulant. but that's me--YMMV as they say...
oh yes i agree--the constant rotation is such a pain, isn't it.
and i do hope all that stress eases up for you and/or you can find a way to cope with it. meditation has helped me tremendously with all that,
just a word of caution re cascara sagrada if anyone reading this is planning on trying that:
there are possible safety issues associated with cascara sagrada. so before taking it, it's a good idea to carefully research it, make your own decision and of course ask your doctor about it. both my gastros have no problem with me taking it but that's me.
