I have had IBS for about 2 years now (that I've been diagnosed). I have ONLY C IBS and have taken laxatives fir this entire time period. I have been prescribed everything from doctors, including Miralax (and have taken larger doses) but nothing seems to work other than stimlulant laxatives (biscodyl/correctol). I have built quite a tolerance to these, as you could guess, and can take up to 6+ at a time. I hat doing this, but I hate being constipated more. I have read about a lazy bowel and am afraid I probably have this or would if I stopped taking these. Is there some way I can retrain my body to go by itself without feeling sick? I've tried not to take them, but after 5 days of not going, I HAVE to for relief. I don't want to be dependant on these forever. Please help.
