I have been on lactose 2 times a day along with colofac slow releasing capsules to relax my bowel to help me go but didn t work a great deal if at all. so i went to see my dr and now i m near a week again of not going i have been taking laxido 3 sachets a day and lexaberal 10ml at night if needed cause i haven t went and i still can t go. i pushed that hard today that a little bit of diarherra came out so my stool is soft, but i m in so much pain and very bloated i look as if i am 5 months pregnant and i also feel very sick and slightly woozy. im now drinking sugar in water to see if that will work. i don t know what more to do. can you help me please.

You have not mentioned about your diet though. A healthy and full of fiber diet is also necessary for bulk formation as well to facilitate bowel movement. Lactulose is also known for its intolerance. .Also colofac is known to cause bloating and constipation in some cases.I would suggest you to stop colofac and take healthy diet full of fiber, prokinetics orally twice daily,Drink plenty of oral fluids and juices take fibrous fruits without peeling them. You will soon be normal.
