Our expert says:
I suggest that you get a second opinion from a gastroenterologist, as it is very important to find the cause for your chronic constipation. Irritable bowel syndrome is a diagnosis made, once all other possibilities have been ruled out. You can not get dependant on laxative and in the interim, I suggest that you use Laxette syrup, 20 ml, twice daily in combination with Softlax tablets, two to four tablets at night. You should also supplement with fibre capsules. A good product is Solgar Multiple fibre capsules available at health shops.
