eg ford pills??
Not sure about all laxatives, but ford pills......STAY AWAY FROM THEM!!! I suffered badly for taking them when I was younger, my body became so used having them to (let's say) functioning as it should that when I didn't take them, I'd got so bad I was hospitalised!!
It is a difficult problem, and aging doesn't help either.
My regularity is very bad, I can go for weeks but I try to drink lots, and really boost my fibre intake as much as possible when that happens.
I also try to have some "hot" chillie dishes to fire things up at times, which tends to help.
Overall though, I soooooooooooo understand where you're coming from, and where you're "not going"!!!!
