For over a month, I having trouble having regular, PRODUCTIVE bowel movements - everything seems to get "stuck" in my abdomen. Resultedly, I get VERY crampy and uncomfortable. I simply can't go. Thus I have begun taking one Glycerin suppository per day...and they have really helped - a lot. I am able to have wonderfully "productive" BM's within 15 min and feel TREMENDOUS relief therafter until the next day when I need to do it again.My question is: ARE they safe? Or should I be taking a laxative instead??What is the difference btwn a suppository, a laxative and/or a stool softener?Need some guidance!Thanks.
