As part of my uni course I have to go on a week's trip away, sharing a bathroom. I have IBS-D, and- I know it sounds drastic but the alternative is not to go on the trip- have decided to drink only water for the week. I plan to clean out by bowels with laxatives the day before. Do you think this will sedate my colon? I've fasted for a few days in the past and it did, but my IBS wasn't so bad then.Also, is it safe to take clear alcohol (ie vodka/white wine) when fasting? I have social anxiety disorder and don't think I can thru the week without it. And what about meds like benzos and codeine?
