Would it be damaging to my intestines/colon if I drink 1.5 ounces of Fleet Phospho a day for 7 days??.....Im trying to get rid of a parasite with medication and I read somewhere that I have to have at least one bowel movement a day. I have cronic constipation and thats the only thing that really cleans me out.....Thanks

You are ahead of me..How do you know you have a parasite? What is it exactly, giardia, ameba?

ditto....with addendum...you might reduce the parasite population but would probably also do more harm than good and alter the gut flora as well...this could have unpleasant consequences.It would be better to see a GI doc or infectious disease specialist for careful diagnosis and treatment if you have symptoms you suspect may be parasites...but as Flux said what makes you think you have parasites (intestinal not human)?

Need this info before I can really comment.Which parasite?How was it diagnosed?Which medication?Where did you get the "must have 1 BM a day" info?There are a lot of website that have all sorts of medicatl information and the quality of it varies widely.If it is from www.nih.gov I would pay attention to this info much differently than www.i_got_really_rich_selling_this_stuff.comK.
