Nov 10, 2012 · Irritable Bowel Syndrome-Constipation in Digestive Health

Stopping the Miralax is what worked for me, maybe not for you. I have IBS-C. My triggers are when I stray from a high fiber diet and stress. That is why I am able to find relief with the proper diet and guided imagery meditation to help with stress. I encourage you to determine your triggers and address them. Thanks for the reply.

I have improved considerably by stopping anything that stimulates the colon, ie Miralax, Metamucil, stool softener and limiting coffee. I am careful to eat high fiber, got to love those veggies. I still take probiotic, magnesium and enteric coated oil of peppermint capsules. The best thing that works for me is a audio program of guided imagery meditations that are specifically designed for IBS. It has taught me to relax and has relaxed my gut. This works for me. I encourage everyone to keep trying to find what works for you.

I found out that daily use in not for me either. Occasional is ok and does help.

Thanks Misty. Gluten is not my problem. I eliminated it for months with no change in symptoms. I am still searching. Thrilled for you that you found what works for you. Good on ya.

Thanks for your feedback. I have used Miralax occasionally but have considered using it daily. I is good to know that it worked for someone else.

Thanks for the reply. I am also taking probiotic with some improvement. I am still hoping for some replies from the community.

Most people when they hear IBS, they think diarrhea. Mine is Constipation. It all started with a cold 8 months ago and the taking of a strong antibiotic,docxycycline. My colon spasmed to the point of no BM for four days. Horrific cramping. Finally stopped taking the antibiotic and had a BM but the cramping has returned periodically. Have not been able to ID any trigger foods. It feels like my colon has just forgotten how to work. It also feels like inflammation. An attack usually comes with no reason, last 4-5 days and leaves my gut feeling like I’ve been hit by a truck. Been having 2-3 attack a month. All the CT scans, colonoscopy, blood and stool test are negative. Nausea accompanies the attacks so I have lost 40 pounds as well. This disease has made it so I can hardly live my life. The Dr’s treat only the symptoms, RX for spasms and pain. Anyone else have this experience and what did you do?
