    Does anyone have any experience taking Laxido long term? I think this is the UK name for Miralax or Movicol, which is essentially macrogol. https://www.medicines.org.uk/emc/medicine/21244 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macrogol#cite_note-AC-7 Everything I read about it suggests its not for...

  9. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    My doc has me on fiber+miralax twice a day. I'm not sure which one makes me gag since I just put them in the same cup, but I'm getting darn tired of throwing up in my mouth nearly every time I take the stuff. Flavoring it with crystal light didn't help much. Is there anything else I can do...
