As a sequel to 'Do you pee a lot?'. :D

The reason I ask is because I feel like I am not regular at all compared to what I was before this program. I take 1 floralax every second day, because if I take it more than that I feel really sick with a sore stomach and diarrhea.

Last night I took 1 floralax and at noon today I had diarrhea. I miss having regular bowel movements. Does anyone else have problems with keeping regular? And how much, if any floralax do you take? I am eating a lot of veggies and drinking a lot of water, so I'm wondering what's going on.

Cheers

Quit taking the floralax and see what happens. It's not a mandatory part of the program. If you start having constipation then you can use it, but otherwise eating enough salad, drinking enough water, and making sure to get the oil in is enough for me.

I don't take Floralax, either. I don't go as regularly as before IP, but I definitely do not go longer than a day without going...

I don't take any floralax, but I'm going more often than I did before IP. I'm wondering if that will continue once I've been OP longer (only in my 2nd week). I'm not used to going quite this often!

The reason I took floralax was because I wasn't going to the bathroom...It made me go, but gave me diarrhea and a sore stomach. I'll try without and see what happens. :)

My coach told me that constipation could be a problem on the IP program, hence giving us the floralax. I would be interested in hearing from others who may have the same issue. Cheers for all the replies.

Strange how our bodies are so different. I thought with so much water and veggies I would be going more. Seems like when I go it is very little and often watery. :(
