I am a 49 year old female with IBS - C. For the past 7 plus years I have been managing IBS-C pretty well with minimal effort. My regimen includes probiotics and a nightly cocktail of activia, benefiber and about 8 prunes. In the morning I have coffee and I would have 2 bowel movements everyday. Lately, I have noticed that things have been slowing down. I am having to add stool softners at night to keep things flowing. I have tried Lizness, but feel like I have problems with urniary retention when I am on it. Anyone notice things slowing down even further as you age?
